Academic Support and Learning Advancement

Success is not a solo endeavor.

ASLA services during COVID-19:

We expect Peer-Guided Study Groups, UPAL, Drop-In Peer Tutoring, and Peer Academic Coaching programs to run both virtually and in-person during fall quarter.

Not sure where to start? Make an appointment for a consultation with one of our staff members.

For help with learning online, see ASLA's COVID-19 learning guidance as well as technical support and other information from Digital Learning.

Find a learning opportunity that works for you

If you're a Northwestern student, you're a skilled learner — but that doesn't mean you never need help. The best learners are the ones who seek (and give) support when it's needed. Explore opportunities here for peer tutoring, study groups, academic leadership development, and more.

Explore your opportunities

Academic strategies programming provides undergrads with sustained small-group mentoring, individual coaching, and interactive workshops.

Course support offers undergrads weekly small study groups and drop-in study and tutoring help.

Make an appointment with one of our staff members to help you find the best resources and develop a plan to achieve your goals.

Meeting with my study group was a great chance to not only boost my overall knowledge of biology, but also to talk about the course in a way that felt down to earth and fun. Going to my sessions was never a chore, and helped me walk away from my class with a much greater understanding than I would have had otherwise.”
