The Office of Academic Support manages University Tutoring Services, the peer tutoring program available at no cost to students experiencing academic difficulty who are currently enrolled in any of the six schools of the University of Mississippi Medical Center. This program is designed to assist students with marginal academic performance (e.g., C or below) by providing supportive instruction by peers with similar educational experiences and backgrounds.
To participate in tutoring, students must:
Please 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.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Office of Academic Support.
