The Guided Study Groups (GSG) schedule can be found by subject or full course listing. You are also encouraged to consult your faculty and TAs during office hours and visit your department learning resource rooms (e.g., Chemistry Resource Room, Physics Resource Room).
Tutorial assistance for the courses below can be obtained by participating in Guided Study Groups (GSG) during the fall and spring semesters. GSG sessions are free and are led two to three times a week by an undergraduate peer leader, who has previously met success in the course. Click on the "Study Groups" tab for detailed information.
