Study Labs

Study Labs are available on a walk-in basis with no appointment needed and are based on small study group sessions. Students may come as often as they need to receive assistance with academics. In the study labs, students can meet with a professional Learning Specialist or student tutor, use a computer to work on assignments, or simply find a comfortable place to sit and to do their homework.
