Our academic advisors are here to help! They will work with you as you explore your academic interests and choose a major; develop plans to reach your academic, personal, and career goals; connect you to campus resources and opportunities; help you overcome obstacles on the path to your established goals; and more. Advisors are available 300 North Eagleson Avenue. Current students may schedule an appointment with their Groups Academic Advisor.

Tutoring is currently available for Groups Scholars Program via Zoom. The schedule for tutoring can be found at Peer Tutors. Tutoring also is available in the Academic Support Centers and in Writing Tutorial Services (WTS).

Ambassadors Program

The Ambassadors Program is a program in which outstanding junior and senior Groups Scholars are invited to serve. It is a chance for older students to give back to the Groups Scholars Program by assisting staff with programs, presentations and serve as guides to incoming Groups Scholars. The Ambassadors Program is open to all Groups Scholars who have completed the requisite hours to be granted sophomore status. Contact Paloma Orozco at for additional information.
