Study Tables

Tables and chairs.

We know that good study habits are essential to success in college. Freshmen, sophomores, and first-year transfer students are required to attend three hours of study table or tutoring sessions, or a combination of both, every week. Juniors, seniors, and transfer students who have completed at least one year of the Pathways Collegiate Program are required to attend one hour each week.

During the study table time, students can schedule their weekly check-in meeting with the Pathways support staff and work on executive functioning skills as needed.

Students also have the option of holding one-to-one or small group tutoring sessions in specific content areas. These sessions must be scheduled ahead of time through AU’s Academic Support Center and, when verified by the tutor, count towards the required study table and tutoring hours.

  • Study tables are facilitated by peer mentors and Pathways staff members. Tutoring sessions must be arranged through the Academic Support Center.
  • Multiple time frames are available to accommodate students’ schedules.
  • Students will have a work plan to follow during the session.
  • Check-in and check-out times are required.
  • Students may elect to go beyond the three hours and use these study support services as frequently as needed.
