Wilson College offers a variety of academic support services, including subject tutoring, in-person and online writing support, supplemental instruction, and reading skills instruction during fall and spring semesters.
Fall 2018 Academic Support Services and Schedule
Comprehensive Academic Support Center Services (subject tutoring, writing lab, supplemental instruction, and reading skills instruction) are provided from September 3-December 7 while classes are in session. Selected services will also be available during finals week.
This semester, Wilson is launching MYWCONLINE, a simple, intuitive tutoring platform where students can view and book all ASC services, including subject tutoring, the writing lab, reading skills instruction, and supplemental instruction.
The ASC's No-Show and Cancellation Policy
We realize that students are busy and that unexpected events happen, but we request that students provide at least twelve hours of advance notice when they need to cancel a tutoring appointment in the ASC. In cases of unexpected illness or events, please provide your tutor with as much advance notice as possible.
Students who repeatedly miss appointments do a disservice to both tutors and other students who could benefit from tutoring. Therefore, students who no-show three or more times in a given semester will be locked out of WCONLINE, the ASC’s schedule management software. If students wish to be reinstated into WCONLINE to access tutoring services, they must meet with either Sarah Feldberg or Shelbie D’Annibale. ASC staff reserve the right to restrict students’ access to tutoring services for a full semester if they no-show eight or more appointments during that period.
Maximum Appointment Policy
To manage demand for tutoring and to prevent students from becoming overly dependent on tutors, students are permitted to book only one hour per tutor per day. Students are also permitted to make only two appointments per tutoring subject per week (e.g., two biology sessions or two writing lab sessions). To make the most of your tutoring appointment, please schedule appointments well in advance of due dates and tests, prepare adequately for tutoring sessions, and prioritize significant concerns.
