your strategies for success with Study Partners.
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
- and how to prepare for tests.
Although a study partner may leverage knowledge of specific disciplines for support and illustration, emphasis is placed on strategies for study and exam preparation.
How do I get a study partner?
After you complete your request, you will be contacted by our program coordinator or a study partner to set up a meeting schedule.
Today, learning requires ever-increasing levels of information literacy, reading, writing and mathematical knowledge and skill, as well as a range of strategies for developing content knowledge. 21C (Twenty-First Century Literacy Partners) is a coalition of campus offices and programs that provide students with support for learning beyond the classroom. Coalition members include Campus-wide Tutoring, the Research Center, the Writing Center, the Tutoring & Math Center, and the Study Partners Program.
