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.

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 Prep workshops and consultations provide students with a comprehensive introduction to the exam, from what it is to how to prepare for the various tasks. Check the workshop schedule and sign up via MyCLAS using the "Sign Up & Enroll" button at the top of this page.

ACE Chemistry teams are small group tutorials for the general chemistry series (Chem 1A-C) that meet for ninety minutes each week with a tutor who also attends the relevant lectures. Chemistry Teams differ from CLAS Chemistry Groups because they are limited to less than ten participants, and because they include academic skills exercises relevant to these classes as well as a focus on concepts. Students who want extra help in chemistry are encouraged to join a CLAS ACE Chemistry Team in addition to a CLAS Chemistry Group which will provide substantial extra practice with problems. Check the ACE Chemistry schedule and sign up via MyCLAS using the "Sign Up & Enroll" button at the top of this page.
