A tutoring session is generally 50 minutes to an hour long.

Attention Students: If a student misses two (2) tutoring sessions without notifying the TRiO-Student Support Services office, he or she will be dropped from that time slot. More than three (3) absences can result in termination of tutoring services. Reinstatement of the student into the program will be at the discretion of the educational specialist and director.
