University Resources

Study Skills Support—All students in the College can access free study skills support through our Center. Access coordinators often work in partnership with our graduate student consultants to improve time management, test taking strategies and devise customized study plans. Our consultants also teach our study skills course, Methods of Inquiry.

Study Groups—Each semester a slate of foundational courses are supported by a study group that meets under the direction of a peer leader on a weekly basis. Students are encouraged to take advantage of this free service.

Workshop Program—Students practice core concepts collaboratively, guided by a trained student leader assigned by the course instructor.

College Tutoring Program—Walk-in group tutoring and individual tutoring are available for a variety of subjects throughout the semester.
