Live Online Tutoring

The Academic Success Center on campus has a full schedule of tutoring sessions daily. Should your schedule permit, you are more than welcome to join a tutoring session via web conference. At the beginning of each week, a full schedule of tutoring sessions is emailed out campus-wide. Tutoring sessions that correspond with online courses are noted on the schedule. These sessions are highly beneficial, as you will have the opportunity to ask questions, review, and talk through information with one of our trained tutors.  You will also be able to participate in discussions and interactions with other session attendees.  Full instructions for registering and accepting invitations to tutoring sessions may be found below.  If you have any questions regarding the process or to inquire about tutoring session availability, please email huneycutt@obu.edu.

OBU Connect (Early Academic Alert System) 

Ouachita Baptist University is committed to student success and retention. For this reason, an early alert process has been developed to help adapting students achieve academic success.  The OBU Connect (Early Academic Alert) System is a software program that enables instructors to identify students having difficulties in their classes and connect them with campus services that can help. 

Online students will receive alerts when failing to log into an online course for a period of seven days.

As an online student, if you receive an early academic alert from your instructor, please contact Dr. Rob Hewell at 870-245-5133 or send an email to hewellr@obu.edu.

For more information regarding this alert system and how it can be of benefit to you please read OBU Connect (Early Academic Alert) System.
