Supported Learning Groups (SLGs)

Supported Learning Groups (SLGs) are free peer-led study groups held weekly in historically challenging courses. Come once or come every week! You can gain a greater understanding of course content, meet other students, test your knowledge, and leave with materials to review later. Visit Supported Learning Groups for more information or the SLG Schedule for session times and locations. NEW this semester: SLGs for PHYS 1080! 

Questions? Email slg@uoguelph.ca.

Academic Action Program

The Academic Action Program offers semester-long support to help you reach your goals and  develop academic skill, such as reducing procrastination, building an effective study schedule, and maintaining motivation. Participants can also join small weekly accountability groups and receive a weekly email. Get started by booking an appointment.


Book an appointment with a Learning Specialist or Learning Peer Helper to create a study schedule, learn new ways to study effectively and efficiently, and/or identify strategies for managing time or reducing procrastination.
