Academic Support Resources

SEAS provides free academic assistance to all undergraduate SEAS students in a range of introductory and engineering-specific courses. Some of the resources offered are PAL Study Halls and Academic Commons. Read more about each type below.

Fall 2018 Study Halls start on Monday, September 10, 2018.

The Academic Commons is a “one-stop shop” for academic resources and services across the university coordinated by GW Libraries and Academic Innovation. Academic Commons provides academic support for all your Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, and Biology needs through multiple types of support, such as individual peer coaching, drop-in sessions, and weekly reviews. You can also find help with other courses not in STEM fields.

You may visit Academic Commons on the entrance floor of Gelman Library.

Our Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) Study Halls provide academic support by major through carefully selected core engineering and computer science courses taught during your freshman, sophomore, and junior year. These study halls allow you to clarify new concepts, practice example problems, and review difficult readings with the help of our PALs. Bring your notes, your textbooks, and your friends! 

Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) program is led by current undergraduate SEAS students that have excelled academically and who have a passion for teaching/learning.

To find the schedule of UTA and LA office hours, please look at the SEAS Academic Support Calendar featured at the bottom of the page. 

The University Writing Center offers members of the GW community opportunities to receive dedicated attention to their writing and research projects at all stages of the writing process. Their trained writing consultants work with writers from the first-year college experience up through post-doctorate and faculty levels. Rather than providing proofreading and editing, the Writing Center works to help the people who come through our doors strengthen their abilities as writers and to become stronger editors of their own work.
