Students may schedule a one-time appointment with a tutor
through the website one to four days in advance.
The system will only show open appointments for the
next four days, INCLUDING the weekend. For example, if today is
Sunday, you will see open appointments for Monday, Tuesday,
Wednesday, and Thursday. If today is Thursday, you may see open
for Friday, but nothing for Saturday, or Sunday (since the LC is closed those days), and then any open appointments

It is best to check on Sunday
to see available appointments for the full week ahead,
Monday through Thursday.
