SLC Study Groups - Description

Study Groups meet 2 hours a day, twice each week. In groups, a study group leader coaches 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:

  • The initial sign-up period for study groups has passed and group assignments have been posted. (Students are NOT emailed their individual assignments.)

  • As long as you attend the group you were assigned to, you are guaranteed to be in a study group.
  • At this point, if you want to switch to a different study group or join one you were not placed in, just attend any study group below that is not marked as Full.  Be sure to sign the attendance sheet when you attend and you should be added to the study group. As long as the group does not exceed the capacity of the room, you will be allowed to join.
  • If a group is full, then students will be required to attend the study group at least once a week to aviod being dropped from the group.

Weekly Worksheets

Information about MCB 102 Weekly Worksheets will be posted here by Monday, Feb 6.  


Individual Tutoring for MCB 102

The SLC can sometimes provide a small number of students with a one hour weekly 1-on-1 tutoring session for MCB 102. Because of the limited number of individual tutors that the SLC can provide, we typically do this for students who are either repeating the course or have had significant difficulty with 102 or similar courses before. Further, the student should already be taking advantage of the other SLC 102 services that fit his/her schedule.


How to Sign Up
