We will try to have student staff available to assist students. 

Students will still be expected to sign in each time they come to the CAS for tutoring.  Due to space limitations, we will be monitoring the number of people in the CAS at any one time.  Students can spend a MAXIMUM of 2 hours in the CAS at any one time.  Students are limited to one time in the CAS per day based on availability.

CAS staff will spend the first week of classes assisting with D2L training as well as setting up specific software programs (MyMath Lab, My Science Lab, etc).  These appointments can be scheduled on the CAS website.

Make sure you come to your appointment prepared with the assignment information from your instructor or course requirements. You should also bring the necessary textbooks or notes and show your attempts with the assignment.
