Requesting online tutoring:

There are just 3 steps to connect with the ULC!

Step 1: Check our schedule and fill out the form linked there.  NOTE: The form is restricted to NYU USERS ONLY. Make sure that you're logged in to your NYU Account and logged out of your personal gmail account.

PLEASE SUBMIT THE FORM ONLY DURING ACTIVE TUTORING HOURS WHEN YOU ARE READY FOR YOUR SESSION.  Any forms submitted outside of operating hours will be deleted.

Step 2: After submitting the form, the ULC will send you a message through NYU Chat/Hangouts.  Please respond! 

If we don't hear back from you within 3-5 minutes, we may need to move on to the next person on the list, and you will be moved to the end of the line.  During busy times, we may move on even quicker than that!

Step 3: When your session has been confirmed, the ULC will send you a link to your Learning Assistant's ULC Zoom meeting room.  Click on the link and start your session immediately!
