Tutoring Program overview
The College of Pharmacy offers free tutoring services to BSPS students enrolled in CHEM 1210 General Chemistry 1 and CHEM 2510 Organic Chemistry 1 during the fall 2020 semester.
Weekly individual and group tutoring sessions via Zoom are available during morning, afternoon and evening time slots to accommodate a variety of class schedules. Additional sessions will be added throughout the semester.
Follow the link below to sign up for tutoring for your chemistry course this semester:
At sign-up you will be asked to provide the section number of your chemistry lecture. This can be located in Buckeyelink within “This week’s class schedule” and will be listed in parentheses by the course.
After signing up, you will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom meeting link listed as the location. Use this Zoom link to connect at your scheduled session time.
To cancel a session at least 24 hours in advance, delete your sign-up through the "Edit My Sign Up" link in the confirmation email received. If cancelling less than 24 hours in advance, you will need to email your respective tutor (Gen Chem – Eli Lind at email@example.com or Organic Chem – Katie Galgozy at firstname.lastname@example.org) and tutoring coordinator Polly Carlson at email@example.com.
Cancelling less than 24 hours in advance, arriving 15 minutes late, or failure to attend a session will result in a “no-show.” Three (3) no-shows during the semester will result in termination of a student’s tutoring privileges for the remainder of the semester.
Eli is a first-year PhD student in the College of Pharmacy’s Medicinal Chemistry program. He was born and raised in Atlanta, GA and completed his undergraduate studies at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, MO, where he majored in biochemistry and exercise science. While at Lindenwood, Eli tutored NCAA athletes in various chemistry and biology courses. Eli says, “I enjoy tutoring because it allows me to help others further their knowledge and understanding of chemistry, in addition to helping me stay up-to-date on information that lays the groundwork for upper-level chemistry.”
Katie is a first-year graduate student in the College of Pharmacy’s Medicinal Chemistry and Pharmacognosy program. She is from Warren, OH and attended Gannon University in Erie, PA, where she received her Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. Katie began undergrad as a pre-med biology major but made the switch to chemistry after taking her first organic chemistry course. Katie has experience tutoring large group review sessions in organic chemistry, as well as one-on-one tutoring in other higher-level chemistry and general chemistry courses. Katie says, “Tutoring was one of my favorite experiences during undergrad and I am also considering a career in academia, so I am very excited to continue to help students.”
Forms and Documents
The following documents will help you as you move forward in your academic journey. Checklists and sample plans have been created to assist with your ongoing degree audit and meetings with your academic advisor.
The deadline to submit your graduation application is the 10th Friday of the term you intend to graduate. However, we recommend that students submit their graduation application one year prior to when they intend to graduate.
NOTE: Any student who misses the deadline must speak with their academic advisor to discuss the late add protocol.
At the end of each term, academic performance will be reviewed by the Program Director of Undergraduate Studies to ensure that each student is making satisfactory academic progress and meeting college and university standards.
If at the end of their first semester of enrollment a student has earned a GPA below 2.0, they will be placed on academic warning. In order to be removed from this status, the student will need to raise their cumulative GPA above a 2.0 the following term. If the student is unable to raise their cumulative GPA above a 2.0, they will be placed on academic or special action probation.
If at any time the preparation, progress, or success of a student is determined to be unsatisfactory, the college shall be empowered to place the student on special action academic probation. In order to be removed from this status, the student will need to meet the terms of their special action probation as determined by the BSPS Committee.
Any student (not in their first term at the university) with a cumulative GPA below a 2.0 will be placed on Academic Probation. In order to be removed from this status, the student will need to meet the following terms:
- Raise cumulative GPA to 2.0 or above, or earn term GPA of 2.3 or above
- No E or EN grades are permitted
- A grade of Incomplete is permitted by petition only
- May not be enrolled in more than 12 credit hours
- Complete academic success workshop with academic advisor
When a student is placed on academic warning, academic probation or special action probation their student account will be locked (no enrollment activity) until they complete an academic success workshop with an academic advisor. In this workshop students and their advisor will discuss strengths and challenges/barriers to academic success and appropriate support resources, create goals for the upcoming semester and set follow-up meetings to discuss progress. Once this workshop has been completed, the lock will be removed from the student’s account.
If a student is on probation for two consecutive terms and does not meet the terms of their probation, the BSPS Program Committee has the option to either Program Dismiss the student from the BSPS program or Academically Dismiss from The Ohio State University. If a student is dismissed, they will receive a letter notifying them of their dismissal.
Students may petition for reinstatement no-earlier than two semester from the date of their dismissal. Any student who may be reinstated by the College of Pharmacy shall be subject to special requirements as determined appropriate by the BSPS Committee. If the performance record of any reinstated student does not meet the conditions of probation specified at the time of reinstatement, then the College of Pharmacy shall determine whether the student is to be dismissed or continue on probation.
