About Study Groups

Study Groups meet two hours a day, twice each week. A study group facilitator guides the group by reviewing course material, answering questions, and providing worksheets for students to work on together. Groups are structured to allow all members to engage with each other and the course material in an intimate setting. Students will also develop effective study strategies to aid in mastering course concepts.

  • 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.
