The Learning Centers offer FREE study groups through the Learning Assistant (LA) Program. 

  • Study group leaders review course material with students and integrate study strategies—note taking, problem solving, and test preparation—that link course content with cognitive skill development.
  • Study group leaders are trained and supervised Rutgers students selected by the course professor; study group leaders are not course instructors and are present only to facilitate a study session.
  • Study groups are non-credit (they do not appear on your transcript) and students should plan to attend every week. Two absences are allowed; after that, students are at risk for being removed from the study group to be fair to students on our waitlists. 

Study Group Participants:

  • earn higher average final course grades than if they simply studied alone
  • are more actively involved in the course
  • have a better understanding of course material
  • acquire effective learning strategies
  • earn higher grades in the course than students in the same course who do not attend the study group sessions.
