Drop-in tutoring services are offered via Bluejeans, https://bluejeans.com/686604397, on Mondays and Wednesdays, from 3 PM- 6 PM.
Other academic support services will be available within designated time-blocks through virtual service platforms. This page will be updated weekly with links, tutoring contacts, and schedules. Please check back after March 30.
During this time, we are working diligently to ensure that our student programs and services continue. Please contact us with questions or concerns you may have during this time.
Once we return to normal business operations, services will resume as indicated below:

GPA Planner & Calculator allows you to not only calculate your GPA, it also allows you to see what grades you need to meet your GPA goals. By inserting your current GPA, credit hours taken and credit hours left the planner will calculate the average GPA required to meet you goal.
OMED supports and encourages the full utilization of the other tutoring services offered on campus.
These represent an open study environment where any Georgia Tech student can come for academic support in any of the courses offered. Main sessions are held in Room 120 of the Chapin Building, but quiet rooms and group study areas are also available. OMED Tutors and subject matter ‘experts’ (faculty, graduate students, former TA’s, etc.) are ready to help Monday to Thursday from 4-8 p.m. Additionally, course-specific help is offered via the Focus on Physics program, a joint effort with Georgia Tech’s Physics Department and staffed by faculty and Physics Teaching Assistants.
Although our Study Sessions are set up to ensure daily coverage for the larger Georgia Tech courses (Calculus, Chemistry, Physics, etc.), resources are also available for the more specialized, higher-level classes. Study Groups of three or more students in a particular course can set up periodic sessions with a subject matter expert (faculty, graduate student, former teaching assistant, etc.) for the duration of the semester. Further adding to the flexibility of our Study Group program, in situations whereby OMED does not have a tutor for your particular class, we will work with faculty to find someone appropriate to hold regular help sessions. To request formation of a group, students need to complete the OMED Study Group Confirmation form.
Concept Classes are topic-specific review sessions offered by OMED tutors, graduate students, and select faculty members at regular intervals. Informed by periodic discussions with faculty teaching the course, they allow students a valuable “second look” at the material. Concept Classes offerings vary from term to term and are also available via student request.
A joint effort with Georgia Tech’s Physics Department that prepares students for the integration of Calculus concepts in the core Physics course sequence. The Physics/OMED Help Lab provides a structured environment to reinforce the Physics principles and develop problem solving techniques. The Laboratory is staffed by undergraduate and graduate student assistants hand selected by the faculty who teach the main Physics courses. See the schedule for times.
The Interactive Learning and Resource Center is located on the first floor of The Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion. It includes a spacious computer lab with large study tables. Two smaller rooms allow for quite study, tutoring and group collaboration. Both rooms are on a first come first serve basis.
