Your instructor must refer you to tutoring. Click on TUTORING REFERRAL FORM to download a form that you will email to your instructor.

Step 3:

Once you have set up an online tutoring appointment you will be added to a Virtual Tutoring Site in Blackboard.  You will access this through logging onto Blackboard and selecting Virtual Tutoring Site at the main menu. 

Step 4: Log-on to the Virtual Tutoring Blackboard Site.
Step 5:

Step 6:

You will see the Launching Chat Tool page.  You will need to load a Java Plug-in to access the chat window.  Click on download the Java Plug-in. You may want to do this now to avoid delays tutoring later.
