Volunteers may opt for 1 unit of credit, which covers 40 minutes per week of tutoring and several mandatory trainings/meetings with faculty along with homework and/or administrative paperwork.
The unit counts as a general elective toward graduation, but does not count toward our majors or minors.
Volunteers must have fulfilled the third semester (Lang 201) core curriculum requirement, whether by completing the class, passing the competency exam exam, or waiver.
