The Physics Learning Center offers a variety of services including small group study sessions (providing a supportive environment in which to learn physics), access to study materials, and extra exam review sessions. Study groups meet twice each week and are led by trained peer tutors and staff. We provide extra practice problems and opportunities to discuss physics concepts.

There is no cost for participation in our programs. We have resources to work with students in Physics 103, 104, 207, and 208. We welcome students to contact us and can provide everyone with online resources. Unfortunately, however, we do not have the resources to include all students in our small-group study program. The small groups do fill up so if you are interested it's best to sign up early. While signing up early is helpful and provides maximum benefit, our program does not function on a first-come first-served basis. Signing up includes an interview with a staff member to determine which parts of our program are right for you.

The Physics Learning Center works in partnership with other University programs such as the Center for Academic Excellence, the Center for Educational Opportunity, the PEOPLE program, the POSSE program, First Wave, and the McBurney Center.
