Understand your own learning process and develop academic practices that enhance your academic performance at Cal. Our seminar courses, workshops, and academic coaching provide guidance in the following areas: Time Management, Motivation & Goal-setting, Effective Reading Strategies, and more.
The SLC’s Interdisciplinary Resources for Transfer Students (IRTS) promotes research readiness and assists Transfer students with the shifting academic demands of upper division course work such as research methods and writing towards a research concentration.
The SLC International Student Program co-facilitates new and existing academic support services to optimize the learning experiences of international students. We also provide cultural competency training for professional and student staff working with international students at the SLC and across campus. In concert with the SLC team and in collaboration with other campus partners, our staff support and advocate for the specific and evolving needs of international students.
Professional staff and trained, accomplished undergraduates offer structured, engaging learning support to help you succeed and thrive in your quantitative courses.
The SLC Science Program offers support for many Science classes. Students are encouraged to work together to achieve academic success.
The Social Science Program supports the efforts of students taking courses in and/or pursuing majors in the Social Sciences. The program strives to create a community of scholars who work together to master the demands of a given discipline and support each other in achieving their academic goals.
Designing, proposing and facilitating a 98/198 (aka DeCal) course for your peers is exhilarating, intellectually and personally challenging, and vastly rewarding. The Undergraduate Course Facilitator Training & Resources (UCFTR) office provides support, guidance and training to all Cal undergraduates interested in or currently facilitating DeCals or other student-initiated courses.
The SLC Writing Program supports Cal undergraduates in their journeys to become more persuasive and purposeful writers. Via student-initiated conferences and peer-facilitated workshops, our services seek to embolden students to take ownership of their growth as writers and scholars.
