In order for other students to have the opportunity to fill the appointment slot, we expect you to cancel an appointment as soon as you know you will not be able to attend. Cancel an appointment by calling 256.824.2478, emailing, visiting the SSC, or by going online and following the instructions below.

  • Log in to TracCloud using your UAH username and password (same as Canvas)
  • Your appointment will be listed on the screen. Click on the "X" to cancel your appointment
  • The Appointment Cancellation screen will appear. Choose "Confirm Cancellation"

Students are required to cancel appointments with at least 12 hours notice.

  • To cancel within 12 hours, you must call or email the SSC
  • If you cancel within 12 hours, it will be tracked as a "Missed" appointment
  • Students who do not notify the SSC and do not attend the appointment will be tracked as "Missed"
  • Extenuating circumstances will be taken into consideration and students will not be penalized for unsuccessful cancellation attempts due to internal errors

If you have 2 missed appointments, you will no longer be allowed to make appointments until you complete the Reactivation Form. The form will automatically be sent to your UAH email.

If you miss excessively, you will no longer be allowed to make appointments until you meet with the SSC Director.

Bring any materials that will help you and your tutor or coach, such as your textbook, syllabus, notes, handouts, and current assignments.

Make a list of questions you have about the material or need clarification on after reading your textbook and reviewing your class notes. Highlight areas you want to review with your tutor.

If you are working on a writing assignment, bring all of your materials to work on with your tutor, such as the assignment, pre-writing notes, outlines, rough draft, etc.

You can leave a note for your tutor or coach explaining what you would like to work on when scheduling an appointment.

Let your tutor know what your goal is for the session by determining what concepts you would like to cover. Also consider what material you would like to review and practice.

Ask for tips on how to study for the class and actively take part in the session. Once you have worked through material with the tutor, do a practice problem on your own and explain your understanding to the tutor.

Your tutor can help clarify parts of the lecture or text, assist in solving problems, and work with you to find the answers. Your tutor cannot help with take-home exams or other graded assignments.

Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
