Peer Led Study Groups

Each group will have a maximum of 7 participants plus a student leader who has already excelled in that course and is a member of the Academic Support Center Staff.

Peer study group leaders integrate content and learning strategies, including review of lecture notes, textbook readings, problem-solving exercises, and pair or team-based activities that promote active learning and collaboration.

Students will commit to a specific group that will meet at the same time and place every week through the last week of classes.

Weekly participation is expected.

Students may withdraw from the group at any time allowing for their spot to be given to another student.  If a student does not attend two sessions at any point during the semester, they will be dropped from the group.
