Study Partner Program
Optimize your strategies for success with study partners who are here to provide you with tips for studying.
In partnership with 21C, the Study Partner Program provides assistance for students who want to develop their study and test-taking habits and abilities, or who cannot find campus-provided course-specific support.
Before requesting a study partner, please check with your professor or TA for tutoring, and check our Campus-wide Tutoring page to see if a tutor for your discipline or course is available.
What do study partners do?
Study partners provide strategies and tips for studying in various disciplines, including:
- how to read texts using SQ3R and other strategies
- how to take notes
- how to develop content knowledge through memorization, mnemonic devices, content connections and other activities
- how to prepare for tests.
Although a study partner may share knowledge of specific disciplines for support and illustration, emphasis is placed on strategies for study and exam preparation.
Hours are scheduled weekly after a study partner has been assigned to you.
