Guided Study Sessions

Program Overview

The Guided Study Sessions (GSS) Program offers FREE, regularly scheduled group review sessions for students in traditionally difficult courses. 

Based on the Supplemental Instruction (SI) model, our trained peer facilitators plan and hold two, 50-minute study sessions per week to help you practice and put difficult material in perspective. Our GSS Leaders have previously taken your course and earned an A, so they know what it takes to stay on track in lectures and prepare for exams. Go once, a few times, or attend every session—it’s never too late to start attending GSS. However, our data suggests that the more you attend, the higher your course grade will be.
