EXCEL Collaborative Learning Groups-Academic Development - Carnegie Mellon University

What is an EXCEL Group?

EXCEL groups are small formal study groups that are available for the courses listed below. They offer students the opportunity for extra practice and review with a trained leader in a collaborative learning environment.

How Does it Work?

Groups are formed on an as-needed-basis, according to the students' availability, with multiple groups per course. EXCEL Group sessions are an on-going weekly commitment. In general, you will meet with your group once a week for an hour at a set time. For more details, read the EXCEL Group Participation Guideline [pdf].
