The Guided Study Groups program will resume on Wednesday, August 28, 2019. Have a wonderful summer!

GSG Employment - FALL 2019

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Guided Study Group leader! All positions are filled. Please check our website in the spring for vacant positions.

Click here for the full GSG session schedule.  Also, please consult your faculty and TAs during office hours.


Tutorial assistance for the courses below can be obtained by participating in Guided Study Groups (GSG). GSG sessions are free and are lead two to three times a week by an undergraduate peer leader, who has previously met success in the course. GSG sessions are held during the fall and spring semesters. For assistance during summer sessions, please refer to our “TUTORING” tab for information and hours.
