Nominate a Student to be a Peer Tutor!

Each semester, the Learning Resource Center recruits promising academic leaders to apply for Peer Educator positions in the LRC. We are intentional about seeking faculty input to nominate students for these positions, based on their performance in the classroom. We ask faculty members to especially consider students who may not perceive themselves as leaders, as is often the case for students from historically marginalized populations. 

Put forward names of any students you believe would make exceptional peer educators at CSUCI. Faculty with student nominations can refer students to our Apply to be a Tutor  page for information on how to apply.

Spring proctoringExam Proctoring

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 9:00 am- 12:00 pm Monday-Thursday. Students needing testing accommodations rather than makeups should contact Disability Accommodations and Support Services instead. Please see the LRC's Exam Proctoring Services Protocol (PDF, 92.7KB). 

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

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. 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 Brook Masters, the Senior Coordinator of Student Academic Success Services at 805-437-8921 for more information or to request an EPT for your course(s).

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.

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.

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.

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)
