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

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.
