Although science courses at Valpo are demanding, the University wants every student to succeed. 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 science students lead group review sessions for all students enrolled in courses, including:
- BIO 171, Unity of Life
- BIO 172, Diversity of Life
- CHEM 121, General Chemistry I
- CHEM 221, General Chemistry II
- Introduction to Geographic Information Systems
- Introduction to Geomorphology and Earth Systems Science
The Academic Success Center maintains a calendar of all supplemental instruction sessions.
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.
