Guidelines

Enrollment

 Peer education services begin after the add/drop period and end on the last day of class.

  To join a peer education group, you must be currently enrolled in that course here at Duke.

 You can join groups for multiple courses, but you are not allowed to enroll in multiple groups of the same service for the same course. Examples:

      • Peer tutoring group for CHEM101 and peer tutoring group for MATH111 – OK!
      • Peer tutoring group for CHEM101 and SAGE group for CHEM101 – OK!
      • Two peer tutoring groups and/or two SAGE groups for CHEM101 – Not permitted

 Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis.

 Waitlists are also prioritized on a first-come, first-served basis and take into consideration whether a student is not already enrolled in a peer education service for that course.

 If you withdraw from a course, you will no longer be eligible to participate in groups for that course.

 If you determine that you no longer wish to participate in a group, please remove yourself from the group so that others may take advantage of the opportunity. To do this, go to the upcoming event in Penji. After clicking on the event, click on the three dots and choose “Leave event.” Here is a video for visual reference:

Attendance and Meetings

It is expected that you will attend all meetings for the groups you join.

If you are unable to attend a group meeting, you must inform your tutor/facilitator at least 24 hours in advance of the scheduled meeting. You will accrue “no-shows” in the following cases:

    • You miss a meeting without informing your tutor/facilitator in advance.
    • You cancel within 24 hours of the meeting.
    • You arrive more than 20 minutes late for your group meeting.

 After three no-shows, your access to peer education services will be revoked for the semester.

Helpful Reminders

  • There are no services offered during school breaks.
  • Be sure to check your email regularly for updates from your tutor/facilitator about any location or timing changes.
  • Arrive prepared for your group meetings (read class materials, attempt to do homework assignments, and prepare questions).
  • Bring course materials (text, lecture notes, etc) with you to your tutoring sessions.
