Study Skills Workshops

Scheduled Workshops

The Student Learning Center offers free study skills workshops to help students develop practical academic success strategies. Topics offered each semester include time management, reading, memory, test taking, and stress reduction. Most study skills workshops last 40-50 minutes. Students who have attended workshops over the past three years have told us that the top five study skills they developed were organization, better overall study habits, time management, preparing for exams, and an improved study environment. There is no fee for the workshops.

Online Workshops

Many of our workshops are also available online as an alternative for those who are not able to attend the scheduled workshops. For access to videotaped online workshops, click on the link for Regional & Continuing Education here.
