Programs and Policies

The Learning Commons provides centralized academic and skill-building supports for all University of Cincinnati students. All of our services are free and open to all students!

No Show Policy

The Learning Commons has the following No Show Policy:

Students must cancel all appointments at least 24 hours in advance. Students who wish to cancel within 24 hours will receive a No Show status for that workshop or appointment. Students who fail to attend will receive a No Show status.

Two No Show statuses will result in a block from appointment-based services and workshops until the student meets with a professional staff member. The block will be lifted after the student has met with a professional staff member. Three No Show statuses will result in a block from appointment-based services and workshops until the end of the semester.

By scheduling an appointment for any Learning Commons service, you acknowledge that you have read and understand the Learning Commons No Show policy.

Weather Policy

If the University has closed due to inclement weather and you have questions about your appointment, please contact our Front Desk.

Homework Policy

The Learning Commons focuses on creating independent learners and making sure you understand the concepts necessary for you to complete your work and excel in a course.

Remember – your homework is a way to prepare for your exams. By helping you to understand the concepts in your course, your Peer Educator is preparing you to complete your homework on your own. And if you’re able to complete your homework independently, then you’ll know that you’ll be prepared for your exam! If at any point you find yourself struggling with your homework and the concepts, be sure to visit us again.

It is important to know that none of our services provides homework help, but you can bring in assignments that are already graded to review the problems or concepts you missed.
