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