University Tutoring Services

The Office of Academic Support manages University Tutoring Services, the peer tutoring program available at no charge to all students experiencing academic difficulty who are currently enrolled in any school at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. Supportive instruction is provided by peers with similar educational backgrounds to students with marginal academic performance.

To participate in tutoring, students must:

  • be registered in the course for which tutoring is requested;
  • have received a below average grade (C or below) on at least one exam/assignment; and
  • agree to all the requirements of University Tutoring Services as outlined in the Student Contract.

Tutoring services will be available beginning the second week of this semester. Check back at that time to submit requests for tutoring.

Note that tutors are not available for all courses at the institution. Students are assigned to tutors based on an impartial process and specific criteria, which is best for both the student and peer tutor. Therefore, neither students nor tutors are allowed to request specific assignments. Once you have submitted the Request Tutoring online form, you will be notified if tutoring is available for the requested course and provided further information about the program.
