Peer-Led Undergraduate Studying (PLUS) assists students enrolled in historically difficult courses by offering class-specific, weekly study groups. Students can attend any study group at any point in the semester to review for an exam, discuss confusing concepts, or work through practice problems.
PLUS is free and open to students enrolled in supported sections and typically begins the third week of the semester.
PLUS supports upper-division courses in fall and spring semesters in biology, biochemistry, and government. Supported courses vary by semester and are added to the program by request. To add PLUS to your course, contact Leta Moser.

Information for Instructors
Become a Preceptor
Preceptors are student group leaders currently enrolled in the class who provide a collaborative group study experience. Preceptors must apply within the first few days of the semester; listen for an announcement at the first lecture meeting. All students are eligible to apply, but the selection process is competitive.
Preceptors build their group facilitation skills by meeting weekly with the course instructor and an experienced senior preceptor to plan study group activities and receive ongoing training.
