Psychology 496, Undergraduate Teaching Experience, provides opportunities for upper-division students to act as peer tutors or assistants in quiz sections and labs in psychology courses. They are expected to have successfully completed the course in which they tutor and to complete training. Peer tutors may receive two or three credits for each quarter, with a maximum of six credits. Credit will be granted on a credit/no credit basis only.

If you are interested in becoming a peer tutor or assistant, please contact an instructor who will teach a class in a future quarter that you have done well in in the past. Once you have an agreement with the instructor that you will receive Psych 496 credit, then you will need to pick up a registration card from the Psychology Main Office in room 119A Guthrie Hall. Please take this card to your instructor for a signature. Then, submit your card to the Main Office and they will give you a Facutly Code which will allow you to register for the credit using your MyUW account.
