Study Session Schedule

 

 

Study Sessions

Mandatory Study Sessions will take place from: January 23 to April 21, 2017

DISCLAIMER: Calendar is subject to change. Check regularly for up-to-date information.

Study sessions are places for scholars to be able to work on their academics in a quiet and controlled environment. Academic Scholars/Community Scholars are available to assist with general questions you may have about specific subjects. Academic Scholars are not tutors and/or learning assistants. They  are only available to answer or explain general questions. 

In order to recieve credit for the study session, scholars must be present for a minimum of one (1) hour.  For example, if a student stays at a study session for an hour and a half they will get 1.5 (one hour and 30 min) hours of credit. If a student stays for only 30 minutes, they will not receive credit until they reach the hour minimum.

Time Breakdown:

.25 = 15 min  

.50= 30 min  

.75= 45 min

1.0= 1 full hour 

The Study Session week begins on Sunday and ends on Saturday.

Study Groups

Study groups are by request only and are designed to be able to allow students a space to study & collaborate together. If you would like to start a study group of 3 or more scholars, reach out to the Fiat Lux Scholars Program to reserve a room and snacks for your weekly sesisons. These sessions can vary in subject, time, and amount of scholars (min. 3 scholars). The session is a time for students in the same course to help one another, build a deeper understanding of the material, and gain new study habits.  Each study session will be a minimum of 1 hour. 

DISCLAIMER: If you create a study group, you will be required to attend the weekly sessions until the last week of instruction, unless approved in advance by the Fiat Lux Scholars Program staff. In addition, study group hours can be used to fulfill your study session requirement. These study groups must be approved by a FIat Lux Professional staff member to be counted towards their requirements.
