Academic Support

Chemistry courses at Valpo are demanding, and the department wants every student to succeed. To facilitate that success, a number of academic support opportunities are available.

Supplemental Instruction

In addition to professor office hours and department-sponsored help sessions, students can take advantage of free resources through Valpo’s Academic Success Center. Several times a week, experienced chemistry students lead group review sessions available to all students enrolled in:

  • CHEM 111, Introduction to Chemistry
  • CHEM 121, General Chemistry I
  • CHEM 122, General Chemistry I – Honors

The Academic Success Center maintains a calendar of all supplemental instruction sessions for chemistry courses.

Peer Tutoring

Students who have attended Supplemental Instruction sessions and find that they need more focused help can apply for the Peer Tutoring Program. This student-tutor match program provides weekly tutoring sessions in a small group setting. Interested students apply through the Academic Success Center. Learn more »
