Proof Of Visit
You may ask the tutor to stamp your paper after your appointment. The tutor may only stamp a hardcopy of the paper you work on during your session. Neither tutors nor front-desk staff may stamp papers after the session is over. (If you are a part of EOP, please remember to bring your blue workshop slip so the tutor can stamp it.)
