Moore III Scholars Program, LSAMP, Latine Student Services, Morrill Scholars Program, URM Regional Campus Transitioners, Young Scholars Program, Springforward, and BuckeyesFirst.

Before starting the scheduling process

You will only see available appointments for your currently enrolled courses with available tutoring. If you do not see any availability, we do not have any tutors for that course. To see a full list of courses and available times, please visit the Autumn 2023 Tutoring page. (Must login with OSU ID to view the file).

To Schedule an ODI Tutoring Appointment, go to www.go.osu.edu/oncourse

  • Click the blue “Schedule Appointment” link on the right side.
  • Under the “Appointment” options, select the following:
    • “What type of appointments would you like schedule?” select ODI.
    • “Service” select either Course-Based Tutoring (in-person) OR Course-Based Tutoring (phone/remote).
  • Click on Find Available Times button.
  • Pick a date from the calendar and select the Course for which you want tutoring.
  • From the available options, select the day and time that works for you.

When the appointment request is fulfilled, you will receive a confirmation email and it will appear on your OnCourse Calendar. You will also receive a reminder email. Self-scheduling appointments can be booked via OnCourse with a minimum of 48 hours anticipation. When self-scheduling does not take place, said appointment defaults to our processing system which can take an additional 1-2 business days for processing and booking.

ODI Academic Services provides tutoring in nearly 50 different courses. If you need assistance scheduling an appointment, please set up a virtual Zoom appointment by emailing vocal.4@osu.edu.

Please refer to the Tutee Memorandum of Agreement for participation policies and procedures. You may also refer to the “ODI Academic Services - Student Page” Carmen page for additional information.

ODI Supplemental Instruction

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion provides supplemental instruction (SI). SI is a series of weekly review sessions for students enrolled in selected courses. It is designed to organize and improve the ways students study for class by providing a collaborative atmosphere led by an SI Leader with mastery in the course subject. The SI Leader shadows course lectures to understand how students are currently receiving information, and tailors their sessions accordingly.

Students who regularly attend SI sessions earn better grades, develop a greater understanding of the course material, and learn more effective ways to study. Additionally, they develop relationships with peers and develop a network of support. SI session attendance is not mandatory, and students may begin attending at any point in the semester. Do note - the greatest benefit derives from regular attendance and active participation.

If an ODI Scholar is enrolled in a SI-offered course, they will be automatically enrolled in a Carmen group at the beginning of each semester.

To access this group:

  • Log into Carmen
  • Visit the “ODI Academic Services - Student Page”
  • Select “People,”
  • Select the “Groups” tab

The ODI Supplemental Instruction Coordinator and SI Leader will share session information (time, location, days) at the beginning of each semester.
