Please come see us for assistance with course selection advice; academic program guidance; admission questions, such as transfer credits and credit equivalency; clarification of University of Guelph rules, policies and procedures; continuation of Study and Probation questions; and questions about co-op, the engineering profession, professional accreditation and licensure, etc.
I want to know how to better handle the demands of the engineering program.
Engineering Peer Helpers are experienced engineering students providing help to their peers. We offer drop-in and by-appointment study groups to help you develop your problem-solving skills. You can also meet one-on-one with an Engineering Peer Helper to get advice and ideas on how to handle engineering classes, manage a busy course load, and make the most of your study time.

I need help with improving my grades and academic performance.
Learning Services supports students at all levels as they strive to become independent, resilient, and strategic learners. We help students to meet their academic goals, whether those goals involve developing academic skills, understanding how to study in a particular course, managing time and themselves, or getting higher marks. We engage students through services and resources designed to enhance academic performance and cultivate the habits of mind critical to effective learning, academic success, and personal fulfilment.
