SLC Study Groups

Study Groups meet 2 hours a day, twice each week. In groups, a study group facilitator guides the group by reviewing course material, answering questions, working examples to illustrate course concepts, providing worksheets for students to work on together, and helping students develop effective study strategies.

How to Join

  • Study group attendance is flexible and allows students to attend at any point during the semester. Of course, more is gained from consistent attendance! Just attend the session that works best with your schedule and add your name and SID to the sign-in sheet. 

  • Study Groups begin the 4th week of instruction (i.e. week of 02/05/18) and continue until the end of instruction. Most room locations are located in César Chavez. 

  • If a group is full, then students may be asked to attend the study group at least once a week to assure their space in the group.
