Procedures for Contacting the Clark Academic Center for Cycle 5

  • Arranging for telephone conversations and/or virtual meetings by making appointments through email.
  • Speaking to students through telephone conversations, Facetime, Skype, or Zoom meetings (depending on mutually agreeable access).
    • Zoom meetings will be set up by the tutor who will provide the student with a link to join the meeting. There is no cost to the student, but a webcam and microphone will be required to participate in these meetings. Zoom meetings can be accessed on smartphones as well as laptops/desktops/iPads.
