Office Hours

When campus physically reopens, the Learning Resource Center has shared office space available on a first-come, first-served basis for faculty and staff members who would like to conduct their office hours in the Learning Resource Center. If you would like to reserve a room, please contact the Administrative Support Coordinator at 805-437-8409.

Exam Proctoring

When campus physically reopens, the Learning Resource Center offers faculty the opportunity to have individual students make up an exam due to excused absence! The exam proctoring window is from 8:00 am-9:45 am Monday-Friday*. Students needing testing accommodations rather than makeups should contact the Disability Accommodations and Support Services instead. Please see the LRC's Exam Proctoring Services Protocol (PDF, 142KB)

Faculty must complete an online proctoring request at least 48 hours prior to the requested make-up times (one request per-student).

*Please note that the LRC opens for tutoring at 10 am. We cannot guarantee a quite area after this time.

Test Corrections

LRC policy states that tutors are not permitted to help students with take-home quizzes, tests, test corrections, or class projects directly unless specified by the professor by email or phone. If the professor has not directly contacted the LRC, tutors may assist by working with the student regarding the general concepts covered in the assignment. If you would like the tutors to help your students directly with test corrections, please contact the LRC Coordinator at 805-437-8921.

Embedded Peer Tutoring

The LRC offers an extensive Embedded Peer Tutoring (EPT) program. Faculty may request an EPT to support their virtual and/or in-person course sections by contacting the LRC Coordinator at 805-437-8921. EPTs attend all synchronous lectures with enrolled students and support student engagement and learning in a variety of ways. Asynchronous instruction is also enhanced with an EPT, who may be utilized to engage with Canvas course activities and other asynchronous elements. EPTs host weekly drop-in support hours for enrolled students, in addition to tutoring broadly in their content area. Please contact the Coordinator of Student Academic Success Services for more information.

Student Accountability

If you would like to encourage your students to visit the LRC for class credit, there is a verification form and a stamp that the student can request from their tutor that verifies the student's visit to the LRC. Please feel free to download and distribute the verification form to your students. The LRC tutors will sign a verification form only after working directly with a student.

Program-Funded Tutoring

Several programs at CSUCI support tutoring for subject-specific tutoring. The LRC has space for these tutors available. If your program would like to "house" a tutor in the LRC area, please contact the LRC Administrative Support Coordinator. Please note that program-funded tutors are expected to follow LRC procedures during their time in the LRC. For more information, please download Department Funded Tutoring Policies (PDF, 61.36KB)
