    Some Details

    1. Accomplished math, economics, and science students are encouraged to inquire about QRC employment. The QRC maintains a staff of about 60 peer tutors during the academic year.

    2. QRC tutors need to complete and submit the QRC Employment Application Form, and then complete an interview, tutor training, and paid tutoring apprenticeship.

    3. QRC tutors are hired according to Colorado College's needs for a range of expertise in the QRC. While tutors may be hired during the year, most of the tutors will be hired in Block 6.

    4. To be a QRC tutor, tutors must attend Tutor Training sessions and complete an apprenticeship period.

    5. Students must have I-9 & W-4 forms on record with the Financial Aid office. If students have held previous jobs on campus, their paperwork should be in place. For peer tutors serving as Learning Assistants or Individual Tutors, they will fill out a brief data sheet (2-3 minutes) on their main responsibilities in that role per block. LAs will record and submit the names of students with whom they have worked.

    6. Students do not need to be Work Study eligible to be employed in the QRC, since content expertise is required for this position. QRC tutors are among the highest paid student employees on campus.

    7. For more information, contact the Director of the QRC by phone (719-227-8289), email (, or visiting the QRC in Tutt Library.
