Tri-C’s full-time faculty members maintain scheduled office hours to confer with students regarding classwork and related matters. Office hours are announced by instructors and posted outside of faculty offices. Students are urged to familiarize themselves with the schedules and to contact their instructors during those hours. Part-time (adjunct) faculty are encouraged, but not required, to hold office hours – however, they are available to meet with students upon request, generally before or after class. Adjunct faculty include information about their availability for student conferences and the process for requesting such meetings in their syllabi.
