How to Register 

Students must be enrolled in an AEW workshop in order to attend. In general, enrollment for AEWs runs on the same schedule and process as enrollment for classes. Students may access the online add/drop instructions through Student Center. AEW's typically start at the beginning of the 3rd week of classes, and are "general interest" courses with the ENGRG prefix. If the class you desire is full, please continue to check the Student Center to see if seats for the class open up. It is common for seats to open throughout the first few weeks of classes as students are adjusting their schedules.

How to make the Most of Academic Excellence Workshops:  

  • Arrive on time.
  • Introduce yourself to the facilitator.
  • Make certain your attendance is recorded.
  • Participate actively in your group(s).
  • Plan to stay until the end of the workshop.
  • If you must miss a workshop, tell the facilitator in advance.  

Student Experiences 

"I think the worksheets are the most helpful portion of the AEW. These questions always help to reveal topics that I am not sharp on, and the facilitators are very helpful in answering any questions that I have."

"Every student gets plenty of individual help and attention."

"I learn a lot of new concepts and gain exposure to material that isn't covered well in lecture."

"The amount I'm learning from it is noticeable. Also, it is kinda fun."

"I find that when I attend my workshop, it becomes easier to do the homework and I have a much better grasp of the material. I often find lecture to be quite confusing and the workshop really makes everything clear to me."
