The tutorial is a method of earning credit without regular class attendance. It implies, however, that you will have regularly scheduled conferences with a professor. The time given to these conferences should be not less than one hour a week for a four-credit-hour class. Because you are excused from the bulk of class attendance, you will be required to do much more outside work than in an ordinary course, but in the end you should fulfill essentially the same requirements. This method of attaining credit is restricted to regularly scheduled courses. Your credit will bear the catalog number of the course for which you are taking the tutorial.
