Exam reviews are question-and-answer sessions with questions provided by the professor. If no exam review sheet is provided by the professor, the tutor prepares review questions from the book. The review sessions are typically scheduled in the evening from 6–8 p.m., ideally a day before the exam. Please request an exam review two weeks in advance to schedule a tutor. ARC will not schedule an exam review a week before final exams and during final exam week.
The Academic Resource Center schedules ARC Scholars to visit classrooms to introduce themselves and ARC resources to your course. Typically, a class visit requires two to three minutes of your lecture. The ARC scholar may distribute flyers with information about the ARC. The ARC scholar will visit in the beginning or at the end of the class. If you have any questions or concerns, please email Rama at firstname.lastname@example.org or call ext. 7-7980.
The new Early Warning and Intervention system has now been launched for all 1xx-4xx level courses. More information about the system is available on this site.
