We are a four year institution so we can easily maintain a "no first-year" student tutor policy.  This is regardless of the dual enrollment or AP credit level or even those that arrive with a full AA (at age 18!).  We feel students need to gain all of the other skills regarding success and responsibility in college through experience and then we will consider them for tutoring in year 2.  But in the end we primarily hire year 3,  4 and grad students for all of the obvious reasons.

Subject: Questions Regarding Freshman and Transfer Tutors

What policy do you all have regarding freshmen and transfer tutors?  Specifically, I am interested in finding out how you handle students who have the qualifications to tutor, but have not taken the course in which they would like to tutor at the current institution.

Thanks for your feedback.
