Academic Support Program
Under the OMED Guided Study Group program, you and a group of your classmates can have a course-specific tutor meet with you at times that you designate for the duration of the semester. This program is flexible enough to allow you to select the tutor, in the instance that you know of someone that already works well with your group. Be sure to take advantage of this and our other Academic Support services.
Concept Classes are topic-specific review sessions offered by OMED tutors, graduate students, and select faculty members at regular intervals. Informed by periodic discussions with faculty teaching the course, they allow students a valuable “second look” at the material. Concept Classes are currently offered for CS 1371, Math 1551, Math 1552, and Phys 2211.
