Science & Math Peer Academic Support

Whether you need some extra help during the year or in preparation for exams, our science and math peers offer free academic help throughout the semester so you can excel in your courses and reach your goals.

Peer academic support is offered virtually and in-person, on a drop-in basis, for many first and second-year courses. Our volunteers are your science peers, other students who have already taken these classes and who can provide you with valuable tips and support!

Find your course and a time that works for you – and drop in as often as you need.
