Stormer Passes may be required for entry and printing in centers.

MATC utilizes a Pay for Print system for printing and copying. 

The Academic Support Centers and the Libraries have implemented the Pharos Print procedure. Print jobs are captured and listed at a Pharos release station. Use your Stormer Pass to release the captured job to print. Be sure your printing account has sufficient funds, or your print job will not be released.

Tutoring Services

Four types of tutoring are offered:

  • Assigned Tutoring - Want a regular appointment, same time each week? Assigned Tutoring is for you! Tutoring is usually in a small group or in a session that may grow into a group.
  • Open Group Tutoring (also called, "Supplemental Instruction" or "SI") - Believe it or not: Most people learn best in small groups. Open Group Tutoring has sessions that meet several times each week. Attendance is optional.
  • Walk-in Tutoring - Don't know your schedule? Walk-in Tutoring is for the student who occasionally wants to "drop in." Times and subject areas vary throughout the week.
  • Distance Tutoring - Can't get to campus for tutoring? Try one of these services via computer or phone: the Online Tutor, the Online Writing Lab, and the Homework Helpline.
