How to use the Navigate Appointment Scheduling System
Making appointments with the Academic Success Center or Writing Center Tutors
EFSC tutors are available for online or in-person tutoring. Online tutoring via Microsoft Teams is available by appointment only. On-campus tutoring can be by appointment or on a walk-in basis (Face-to-face appointment availability varies by campus and by course. Drop-ins are welcome for on-campus tutoring, but appointments when available, may help minimize wait time). Social distancing is in place during the on-campus appointment sessions. Please follow the steps below to make an in-person or online appointment. If you are making a virtual appointment, view details on how to access the online tutoring session via MS Teams.
Appointments need to be made at least 12 hours in advance. You may only make one scheduled appointment per course, or for writing assistance, per day. If you're planning ahead, you can make an appointment up to three weeks ahead of time.
