University Tutoring Services

The Office of Academic Support manages University Tutoring Services, the peer tutoring program available to students experiencing academic difficulty who are currently enrolled in a school at the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC). Supportive instruction is provided by peers with similar educational backgrounds, and services are provided at no charge to students.

To participate in tutoring, students must:

  • be enrolled in a school at UMMC;
  • be registered in the course for which tutoring is requested;
  • be experiencing academic difficulty; and
  • agree to all the requirements of University Tutoring Services as outlined in the Student Contract.

Tutoring services will be available for the fall semester beginning September 3, 2019. You may submit a request for tutoring at that time.

Students are assigned to tutors based on an impartial process and specific criteria, which is best for both the student and peer tutor. Therefore, neither students nor tutors are allowed to request specific assignments. While tutoring is available for many foundational courses, it is not available for all courses at the institution. Once you have submitted the Request Tutoring online form, you will be notified if tutoring is available for the requested course and provided further information about the program.

If you have any questions, contact the Office of Academic Support.
