Tutoring Services Policies and Procedures

The tutoring programs at The University of Tulsa are designed to provide students with a space to cultivate knowledge of their course material and to provide guidance through this learning process. It is our mission to enhance student success and provide academic support to every student seeking tutoring.

All tutoring sessions are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. In order to implement a more collaborative learning environment at The University of Tulsa, the Student Success Team encourages group learning with other students in your class, along with a tutor. For Fall 2020, online tutoring sessions may include up to 5 students. We have also expanded hours to allow for students to arrange tutoring on Friday evenings and on weekends. The official “office hours” for the Tutoring Center are Mon-Fri 8:00am to 9:00pm, Sat 10:00am to 9:00pm, and Sun 12:00pm to 9:00pm.

Tutoring sessions are currently available to be booked up to 30 days in advance. Cancellations or rescheduling requests must be submitted at least four hours before a scheduled session is to take place. Last-minute cancellations or no-shows will incur a fee of $25, after a warning for the first violation.

Helen N. Wallace Writing Center

The Helen N. Wallace Writing Center offers one-on-one assistance with writing projects to all University of Tulsa students. Students may bring in assignments from any class as well as personal writing projects like résumés.

Writing Consultants can help students at any stage of writing: formulating ideas, developing and organizing a draft, editing a near final version or anything in between. During a session, a writing consultant will help students identify weaknesses in their writing and find ways to strengthen their rhetorical choice.

The Helen N. Wallace Writing Center is located in McFarlin Library, 3rd Floor.  To make an appointment, go to or call 918-631-3131. Appointments are recommended, but walk-ins are most welcome.

Hours vary by semester.
