Academic Skills

Workshops are one-off, small-group settings where students sharpen their academic skills and try out new study strategies with the help of a CLAS tutor. Each workshop focuses on a specific topic, whether it be tactics and strategies or general mindset. Check the workshop schedule and sign up via MyCLAS using the "Sign Up & Enroll" button at the top of this page.

Consultations are individual appointments with an academic skills specialist. Consultations can focus on specific issues like making a study plan but can also address more general topics, such as how to be successful at UCSB.

GRE Preparation provides students with a comprehensive introduction to the exam, from what it is to how to prepare for the respective measures. GRE Prep workshops will resume in the fall quarter. For Summer Sessions, if you would like to discuss GRE exams, please set up an individual skills appointment with Jay Stemmle (for Verbal Reasoning) or Emma Cristofani (for Analytical Writing or Quantitative Reasoning).
