EXCEL groups are offered for a select number of traditionally difficult courses. Each group is comprised of up to nine students and are formed on an as-needed basis, with multiple groups per course. Groups meet weekly throughout the term and are facilitated by trained student leaders who have already completed the course and earned an A. Sessions are interactive and geared specifically to the group members.

Fall 2019 EXCEL Supported Courses

Registration will begin on Tuesday, September 4th.
