FERPA: What is it? How does it affect me?

FERPA is a Federal law that stands for "Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act" and it protects students' educational records. Once classes began on Monday, August 29, then FERPA also begins for our new students. If you have questions about what FERPA covers, please visit these web pages: Student FERPA FAQs and Parent FERPA FAQs.

EGR Tutors are Needed

We are looking for tutors for EGR111 (Engineering Graphics), EGR112 (Programming for Engineering Applications), EGR113 (Intro to CAD/CAM), and EGR185 (1st Year Design). Tutoring will be performed as a combination of in-person and virtually. Preference will be given to those who can tutor all four courses and those who have been a tutor in past semesters. The new EGR111, EGR112, EGR113, and EGR185 courses replaced EGR106/107, so if you have completed either set of courses with a satisfactory grade (B+ or higher), you are qualified to be a tutor. It is preferred that you are available for afternoons and weekends, but all applicants will be considered. A few hours of availability for either Saturday or Sunday afternoon are desirable as well.

If you have been a tutor in the past, please reapply and provide your current availability.
