Yes, these services will be available online. If feasible there may also be additional in-person appointments.
The following resources are now available to students for writing tutoring, subject tutoring, and SI sessions:
The Writing Center
The Writing Center will offer asynchronous and synchronous online tutoring appointments to all undergraduate and graduates students.
Students can email email@example.com or visit our website to submit an eTutoring appointment request. Depending on which tutoring option they choose, students will either receive an email from the Writing Center with an invitation to a synchronous MS Teams meeting or a copy of their paper with written feedback. The Writing Center’s official eTutoring policy and a MS Teams tutorial are located on our website.
The Academic Resource Center
Students should continue to schedule Peer Tutoring appointments through the Starfish "Courses" tab. This link will give students the names and schedules of Peer Tutors for their courses. From there, they can schedule a meeting with the Peer Tutor in Starfish, or email them to make an appointment.
Peer Tutors will be holding their sessions synchronously online through Blackboard Collaborate Ultra. Once an appointment has been scheduled, Peer Tutors will send students a link to a Bb Collaborate session.
For courses that have Supplemental Instruction Leaders, weekly SI sessions will be held through Blackboard Collaborate. SI Leaders will email students the link to Blackboard Collaborate sessions, which will happen at the same time each week.
The ARC website lists the current SI sessions and courses with peer tutoring, as well as student instructions for scheduling Peer eTutoring and online SI sessions.
Please direct your students to these resources. We hope that online access to the Writing Center and ARC will offer additional support during this turbulent time. If you need more details about any of the software or the procedures, please feel free to email us.
Update on Commencement:
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and government mandates that prohibit large groups from gathering, Manhattanville College was forced to cancel all spring events and was not be able to hold our 2020 Commencement as scheduled.
We recognize how important Commencement exercises are to our community and are actively exploring options regarding Commencement and finding suitable ways of celebrating the accomplishments of our graduating students, both undergraduate and graduate, with our community. We hope to reschedule Commencement at the earliest possible date.
Students who have purchased regalia may keep it or return it for a refund if it is unopened. Students can return their product by following the instructions on www.herffjones.com/collegereturns. Herff Jones will continue to update the detail and FAQs on this website as they get more information.
This is a very challenging time and we appreciate your understanding as we work to protect the health of the campus community. We look forward to honoring our graduates in some form in the future and celebrating their hard work and achievements. Please look for additional communications in the coming weeks regarding this situation.
