Professors’ Office Hours

One of the best ways to gain insight into course material and requirements is meeting with professors during their office hours. During office hours faculty can assist students to:

  • Increase understanding of a course
  • Improve study techniques specific to the subject matter
  • Assess knowledge of course content
  • Explore approaches to an assignment
  • Review course material and solve problems
  • Identify sources of further help
  • Plan academic and career goals
