Online Appointments

The ACT has two types of online appointments for specific types of tutoring subjects. Please read the following sections for more information and instructions.

Making and Participating in an ACT Online Writing Tutoring Appointment

Online writing tutoring is for assistance with writing assignments in any course and at any level. We recommend 1 hour appointments (2 30-minute appointments back to back) for up to 8 pages, and multiple appointments for more than 8 pages. Students must use Google Drive to participate in an online writing tutoring appointment. Prior to making a live online appointment, please read the instructions Making and Participating in an ACT Online Writing Tutoring Appointment.

Making and Participating in an ACT Live Online Tutoring Appointment for all Subjects and Topics Supported by the ACT

Live online tutoring appointments are available for all subjects and topics we tutor. Tutors will select the best platform and send information on how to connect prior to your appointment. Prior to making a live online appointment, please read the Instructions for Making an Online Appointment at CSU's ACT.

Missed Appointments

Please visit our Policies page for details about this topic. If you know you are going to miss your appointment, you can call, email or use EAB to cancel to avoid being blocked from making future appointments. If you miss your appointment due to an emergency, please let us know as soon as possible.

Preparing for the Appointment

Login prior to your appointment start time and be prepared with any relevant instructions, textbooks, class notes, handouts, and so forth. The CSU library has laptops available for checkout for online appointments.
