  • Please carefully read all of the information listed below prior to scheduling your RamTutor session.
Technical Information

  • Small group sessions are available upon request.

Appointment Policy

Please see below for the appointment policy.

  • All appointments are created using the Bookings scheduling system. Any appointment requests sent via e-mail will not be accepted.

  • Appointments should be booked at least 24 hours in advance and may be scheduled up to 2 weeks (14 days) in advance.

  • Tutoring sessions are generally capped at 60 minutes (1 hour). 

  • Students may only receive tutoring in courses for which they are enrolled at FSC for the current semester.

  • Students are only permitted one (1) tutoring appointment per course per day. (Lab/Theory are counted as one course).

    • Back-to-back (double) appointments for the same course will not be accepted and will be cancelled by the Center's staff.

  • Students who need to cancel or reschedule an appointment should do so at least 12 hours prior to their session by contacting the Tutoring Center staff during normal business hours at 934-420-2066 or e-mailing TutoringCenter@farmingdale.edu.

  • Students who fail to arrive within the first 15 minutes of their appointment without notifying the staff will have their session cancelled and marked as a “No-show”.

    • Students who are marked as a "No-show" will forfeit their appointment.

    • After two "No-show" incidents, students will receive a warning notice. Any subsequent no-shows will result in the student being prohibited from scheduling any additional appointments for the remainder of the semester.

Student Expectations

Prior to your initial tutoring session, please view the Frequently Asked Questions and Tutoring Responsibilities and Expectations documents.

General Online Policy

Similar to on-campus tutoring, students are expected to come to their sessions prepared with specific questions/concepts in which further clarification is needed. Tutors are not teachers and are not responsible for teaching students course content. Students should attend a tutoring session after first seeking assistance from their course instructor. Tutors reserve the right to end a session early if the student is not adequately prepared, or if they are blatantly disregarding either the College's Academic Integrity Policy, Student Code of Conduct, or the Tutoring Center's Student Tutoring Agreement

In accordance with the College's Academic Integrity Policy, the Tutoring Center strictly prohibits those who utilize its services from engaging in any form of academic dishonesty. As a result, tutors are not permitted to complete any type of assignment for a student, directly provide them with answers to an assignment, or assist them with a graded assignment (such as homework, projects, take-home exam, etc.) unless the Center staff has received written consent from the course instructor. Failure to comply with this policy could result in the course instructor/academic department being notified, a loss of tutoring services, or in extreme cases, a referral to the Office of the Dean of Students for disciplinary action.
