Learning Assistant Program

Student writing on white boardThe College of Arts and Sciences at Western Michigan University wants to help you succeed right away in your major program. Gateway courses come near the beginning of a program and are required for every student graduating in the discipline, like BIOS 1120 for biological sciences majors and PSY 1000 for psychology majors.

The Learning Assistant Program offers direct support to students in gateway courses via in-class assistance and by facilitating study sessions to review course objectives and develop effective study techniques. A learning assistant will be present in the classroom to assist the course instructor and students. The learning assistants will also lead three study sessions each week for the students in their assigned section. The schedule below details meeting times and locations for study sessions or call the Student Success Services office at (269) 387-4252.
