How to Schedule a Tutoring Appointment

The Academic Resource Center (ARC) has two office locations. The Texans 4 Texans Tutoring Services office is located in Room 155 of the Dick Smith Library, and the ARC main office is located in Room 15 of the Barry B. Thompson Student Center. Student may schedule an appointment with either of these two offices in person or by phone. We do not schedule or change tutoring appointments through email, text, or social media.

Information Needed When Scheduling Appointments

  • Student ID Number
  • Course Number and Subject (Example: CHEM 1411, General Chemistry I)
  • Tarleton Email address (Third party emails such as Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail etc may block emails from TSU servers to junk/spam filters).
  • Your Student Schedule
  • Times when you will be available for tutoring

Cancellation or Changing Tutoring Appointments

The ARC's tutoring services are free to TSU students. Some ARC tutor schedules fill up very quickly. Each student is required to sign a tutor contract prior to their first scheduled appointment. Repeated changes or cancellations of appointments ties up those scheduled time slots on the tutoring calendar, and deprives services to other TSU students. For this reason, we ask you to adhere to our cancellation procedures. The ARC reserves the right to remove students from the calendar who get two unexcused cancellations in a semester. 

The ARC will only cancel or change tutoring appointments, by phone or in person, if the change is made by 5pm the business day prior to the scheduled appointment. All other alterations to the schedule will be considered unexcused cancellations. 

  • Call  or stop by one of our two office locations no later than 5pm the business day prior to your scheduled appointment.
  • If no one is in the office or we are busy please leave a voice mail. All of our voicemails are time and date stamped. 
  • Last minute emergency cancellations will only be approved by an ARC coordinator or Graduate Assistant on a case by case basis.
