  3. Submit the completed application (application, reference, and transcripts) via workday. You can submit multiple documents under the Resume/CV portion of the application.
  4. Once we have received the completed application, your information will be sent to that department(s) of the subject(s) you are requesting to tutor.  You may be required to interview and/or test with that department in order to be approved for that subject(s)
  5. Once the subject(s) have been approved and an opening is available, you will be interviewed by Centers for Academic Success.
  6. Shortly thereafter, you will be notified regarding potential employment.

Submitting your application does not guarantee a position in our department.  Hiring is based on available openings and outcome of the hiring process.  Incomplete applications will be kept in the system for one year and then deleted for confidential reasons.

Once hired, tutors are required to undergo training that provides knowledge and practical skills necessary to become an effective tutor. The tutor will need to complete list of departmental trainings prior to the first tutoring assignment. Ongoing professional development training is offered and required throughout employment with the Centers for Academic Success.
