Refer a Student
Before submitting the online recommendation form, please communicate with the student as to why you are referring them and what areas they need help improving. While we send out a generic email to all students who are recommended, it is much more effective for the faculty member to contact the student before they submit the recommendation.
Fill out the online recommendation form. Please provide as much information as possible. The more information you provide, the better we can help the students you refer. It is not uncommon for recommended students to ask for assistance with one issue when a faculty member referred them for something else.
Wait for a response. After we receive the recommendation, we will confirm the receipt of the recommendation via email. At this point, you may indicate if and how you would like to be notified if the recommended student has completed appointments with either the Writing or Math Tutoring Center.
Refer a Group of Students
If you are referring multiple students for the same issue or assignment, you do not have to fill out an individual form for each student. Simply email a list of students along with the details of the assignment to the Writing Center (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Math Tutoring Center (email@example.com) using the subject "Student Recommendations." If you have any special instructions or requirements, please indicate this in the email.
Professors can request a class visit from a Writing or Math representative to come and give a short presentation detailing the services provided to on-campus and online students. Class visits can occur in-person or online through Blackboard Collaborate. Oftentimes, students are unaware of all the services available to them or do not know how to access said services. In our experience, students are more likely to schedule appointments or view online resources that assist them with their coursework after meeting an ASC representative.
