The Tutee Seminar will be completely virtual. Students can self-enroll in the seminar via Blackboard starting the first week of classes. Upon completing the seminar, a student is eligible to obtain two tutors (one tutor in two different courses) during the fall semester.

Here are some step-by-step instructions for self-enrolling:

  1. Log into Blackboard.
  2. Look for the box titled "Seminars and Workshops" on the main page.
  3. Click on "ASC Tutee Seminar."
