Tutorials

Preliminary Schedule – schedule, tutorial titles and tutors are subject to change.  This year, you will have the opportunity to take tutorials on the UNC-Charlotte campus, many of which are two-parts, where the first half is in the form of a class and the second half is in the form of a lab.  There are also some tour opportunities.  Each half-day tutorial is $275 for members, $300 for non-members and $165 for students (student ID required). ASPE will provide transportation to the UNC-Charlotte tutorials from The Westin Charlotte, and will provide the transportation back from UNC-Charlotte to The Westin Charlotte.
