Frequently Asked Questions
Why is appointment tutoring through CU Navigate?
While our tutors are ready and excited to support you, we want to ensure they can easily keep track of their appointments and be adequately prepared for each one. Using CU Navigate allows the tutor to get reminders about their upcoming appointments and update their availability quickly.
Can I access CU Navigate if I don't have a smartphone?
Absolutely! You can log into the desktop version here.
How do I schedule an appointment?
You can schedule your appointment through the CU Navigate platform or through the your CU Navigate app. On your laptop, once in CU Navigate, you will select the blue Schedule an Appointment button. On the app, you will select the Appointments tab. Both options will walk you through a few quick steps to assist you in scheduling an appointment with the appropriate tutor.
How can I prepare for my appointment?
Review your notes and textbook and attempt practice problems so that you have specific questions/goals ready for your tutor session. Respond to the Appointment Info Form found in your tutor's Special Instructions. This will allow your appointment to be tailored to your needs and the tutor will work to address your questions.
How do I cancel an appointment?
In your Upcoming Appointments list to the right of your screen, select the tutor appointment you wish to cancel. In the Manage my Appointment box, click Cancel my Attendance. Provide a reason for the cancellation by selecting the drop down list under Reason. Click Mark as Cancelled. *Please note that cancelling less than hour before your appointment can result in suspension of tutor appointment privileges.
Why can't I see any available appointments?
There may be a few reasons that you are unable to see appointments for your course:
There are no available appointments for the day you selected. Try selecting another date and if you still are unable to find an appointment, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are no available appointments for the meeting type you selected. We recommend selecting both meeting types to view all options. If you are looking for a Virtual appointment and don't see it for the course you need, email email@example.com so we can connect you to an in person tutor for virtual session. (There are a few courses for which we only have virtual tutoring at this time.)
The available times overlap with your scheduled classes or common exam time. If this is the case, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can work with you to schedule an appointment.
