FREE Study Skills Workshops

Each semester, the Academic Success Center offers workshops which cover topics such as time management, test preparation, textbook reading, concentration, and memory improvement. The workshops are free and open to all Onecard holders.

For Spring/Summer 2014, all workshops will be held in Lab A- first floor of the Undergraduate Library.

Please register online by clicking on the workshop title to reserve your space, as seating is limited. A reminder email will be sent the morning of the workshop to those who have electronically registered. Workshops typically last for approximately 50-60 minutes unless otherwise noted.

For questions, please contact Angela Sickler at (313) 577-4195 or au1072@wayne.edu.

If you're unable to attend a particular workshop, or prefer a one-on-one approach, please consider utilizing our individualized Study Skills Counseling services. 

Faculty, Staff, and Students: Due to the nature of our workshops, we are only able to sign verification forms for probation/reinstatement students. Students must present form provided to them by their academic advisor.
