The Guided Learning Center (GLC) is a resource for students provided by the Diversity Programs Office in the College of Engineering.  The Academic Assistance program is designed to include supplemental instructions for first and second year students as well as for the more demanding and challenging courses in the engineering curriculum. This program is provided for engineering students at no cost.

Staffed by a program coordinator and a team of upper level engineering students from different disciplines, the center’s primary focus is to offer academic assistance to minority engineering students in all engineering majors. Academic assistance focuses on courses in mathematics, physics, chemistry, as well as on many core-engineering courses in all disciplines. The Academic Assistance Program is designed to guide students through courses necessary for graduation, and to help them increase their educational skills and engineering career progress at MSU.

Additional resources provided by the GLC include:
  • Video Library
  • Video Equipment
  • Computers for students to use in viewing instructional videos on mathematics, learning strategies, financial planning, and researching student organizations.
  • NEW! Work in Progress (YouTube Calculus Tutorial Videos)
