Select links for information on:


To Sign up:

  1. Sign in to the Slug Success system. A Video Tutorial will be uploaded soon.
  2. Sign up for a session as soon as Slug Success opens. Sessions fill up quickly, sign up early to avoid being put on the waitlist!
  3. Come prepared to your tutoring session and be ready to participate with other students in your group.

Attend Weekly:

Once a student signs up for a Small Group Tutoring session, LSS Staff will make your session on Slug Success repeat until the end of the quarter. When students sign up for tutoring, students make a commitment to attend weekly for the entire quarter. All students can sign up for up to 2-Hours of tutoring a week per couse they are enrolled in.

“Early and often” priority:

Priority will be given to students who have attended their sessions early and often. Therefore, students who add themselves to a session later in the quarter (when they have not been attending regularly) may be dropped if the session size grows past 6 students. Tutors will be responsible for prioritizing students who committed early in the quarter and will try to accommodate students who want to join their sessions later on in the quarter.

Drop Policy:

Tutoring is a valuable resource that many students use throughout their time at UCSC. To make sure all students have access to tutoring, Learning Support Services does have a student drop policy. All undergraduate students are allowed one excused absence as long as they give their tutor 24 hours notice. If a student does not show up to a session, and has not communicated with their tutor, the student will be dropped from the session scheduled.
