Learning Consultations

Learning Consultations offer opportunities for undergraduate, graduate, and professional students to build and strengthen their study skills and strategies as they engage with Penn coursework and a variety of academic projects. Our learning specialists support students with time/project management, organization, academic reading, research and writing, problem-solving, and exam preparation.

Learning Consultations by Appointment

Students can schedule 50-minute virtual or in-person meetings to discuss their study strategies and approaches to a variety of academic assignments and assessments. Access MyWeingartenCenter to schedule a Learning Consultation. If you select a virtual consultation, you will receive a Zoom meeting link in the appointment confirmation email.

Students are limited to scheduling one Learning Consultation per week. If an additional appointment is needed in that week, we ask that students speak with their learning specialist.

Appointments are generally available Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. ET, but additional times may be available depending on the availability of our learning specialists.

Drop-In Learning Consultations

In collaboration with the key campus partners, the Weingarten Center is now offering drop-in consultations on Mondays from 1 – 4 p.m. at the Graduate Student Center and on Wednesdays from 3 – 5 p.m. at the Shleifer Family Penn First Plus Center in College Hall.
During drop-in consultations, students can discuss study tools and strategies, managing assignments, school-life balance, or how to access Weingarten Center resources.


Learning Strategies Workshops

The Weingarten Center offers a variety of in-person and virtual learning strategies workshops. Our signature workshop series in the Fall and Spring semesters include Mastering the Ivy League (fall) and Fresh Start (spring) for undergraduates, Academics Plus, which addresses language, culture, and resources for international students and students from linguistically diverse backgrounds, and Strategies for Success in Graduate Studies designed for graduate and professional students as they continue developing strategies for advanced coursework and projects.

We also encourage students to explore materials related to these workshop topics in our Study Tools and Strategies and to check out this video podcast on Effective Strategies for Learning and Productivity developed in collaboration with student leaders in the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE).
