Peer Study Group Program

The purpose of the Peer Study Group Program is to provide additional supports and alternative learning opportunities for undergraduate students in our faculty who want to maximize their learning and academic performance. The program is also helpful for those who are encountering challenges with difficult courses.

Students in the study group get the opportunity to meet with study group leaders (leaders are class volunteers) on a weekly basis to review and discuss course content and materials; to ask questions in order to better understand difficult concepts and/or topics; to develop stronger study habits through sharing of past experiences and/or sharing alternative techniques or strategies for achieving success academically.
