Different Ways to Earn Hours:

Tutor/Mentor Appointments When student-athletes have an appointment with a tutor or mentor, they will report directly to the tutor/mentor. At the conclusion of the session the tutor/mentor will report the time spent in the session along with the progress that was made in the given subject on Tutor Trac or tutor form. Please see the tutoring link on the home page for more information.

Weekly Advisor Appointments For advisor meetings, the student-athlete will report directly to their academic athletic advisor during their scheduled academic meeting time.  The advisor will document the time in Tutor Trac. 

Monitored Independent Study Student-athletes will report to the monitor in either rm. 201 or 226 to check in.  Students are checked in by giving their Tiger1 ID card to the monitor on duty.  When checking out they will report back to the monitor to retrieve their Tiger1 ID card. The time spent in monitored independent study will be calculated by the Tutor Trac system.

Approved Outside Events Outside events must be approved prior to the date of the event (e.g. pre-approved study groups, concerts, plays, and required events for class.).  The advisor will check student athlete’s syllabus and/or confer with the professor.  The advisor will submit the amount of time earned for each event into Tutor Trac.

Group Meetings Student athletes must submit assignment and names of group members to their advisor prior to the date of the event for approval.  The advisor will check student athlete’s syllabus and/or confer with the professor. The student will check in with the monitor in independent study to be given a private room.
