Study Group Sessions
These are student-directed sessions where students work collaboratively with others who are enrolled in the same course. To work in a study group, students must schedule the time with the ASC director one week in advance. Students working in study groups may request a tutor to function as facilitator for the initial session. Although group members work independently after the initial session, they are able to access tutorial assistance as needed.

Workshops & workshop series are held throughout the semester. Please check Workshops for a list of upcoming workshops.
