Beginning the 2014 fall semester, students enrolled in either the North American-Trained PharmD Program or International-Trained PharmD Program will have the opportunity to participate in tutoring sessions to improve their academic performance. The tutoring sessions will be available for students receiving a C- (70% - 72%) or lower in a didactic course.
The Distance Degrees and Programs (DDP) Office will contact students throughout the semester based on course progress to encourage use of tutoring services. In addition, students may request a tutor by contacting the DDP Office.
Want to become a tutor? Tutors will be selected based upon their academic performance. Criteria for tutors include:
- Complete at least 3 semesters with the NTPD or ITPD Program
- Have a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or higher
- Received a grade of A (A- (minus) is acceptable) for the individual course s/he will tutor
Tutors will be compensated for their time and will receive training from the DDP Office.
More information about the Tutor Program will be coming soon!
