GCC's Tutoring Services offers Study Groups for specific courses. Study Groups offer students an opportunity to share ideas, learn from one another, and develop a support system.

Groups of four (4) or more students can organize a group with a tutor by completing the Study Group Request Form and bringing it to the center. Tutors are available to facilitate study group sessions for Gloucester County College courses. In order to request a facilitator for a study group, the group must have at least four (4) students from the same course who can meet at the same time on a weekly basis.

The Study Group's tutor will assist students with any questions, review challenging course material and provide the opportunity for students to practice applying what they are learning in class.

If you have any questions about the Study Groups, please call Tutoring Services at 856-681-6250.

Students, start forming your Study Groups as early in the semester as possible.
