Formats of Service

We offer a combination of course-specific Study Groups, workshops, and open Drop-in hours to meet a wide variety of students’ needs.  All of our services are based on a student-centered approach which respects the diversity of students' experiences, challenges students to engage actively in their own learning, and provides opportunities for students to work collaboratively to achieve academic success.

Workshop for Transfer Students

The IRTS Program offers general and topical workshops throughout the semester on a variety of topics: effective study strategies, exam preparation, approaching and focusing a research project, gathering and organizing sources for research, and honing research writing skills. Check back for a list of workshop topics, locations, and times.

Study Groups

Study Groups provide students with an opportunity to collaborate with their peers while learning to navigate the discipline-specific demands of their course.  Study Group Leaders facilitate discussion of course content and guide students in developing approaches to critical reading, time management, note-taking and exam strategies.

How to Sign Up

To join the study group students need only show up to designated location/time and be prepared to sign in with a valid current student identification number. Space is limited; admission to the Study Group is on a first-come, first-served basis.  Study Groups typically begin the third week of the semester.
