Students in Peer Learning Center

Peer Learning Center

A lot of Northwestern students say our curriculum is challenging. But they also say the college provides support that helps them not only survive but thrive academically. In fact, when asked about their rigorous classes, many students admit: “I’m really learning something for the first time.”

3 out of 4 students use Northwestern’s Peer Learning Center (PLC) regularly during their four years at NWC—including some with 4.0 GPAs. Located in the DeWitt Learning Commons, the center offers these free services for all students:

  • Around 200 student peer tutors
  • Academic counseling
  • Disabilities accommodations
  • Study sessions
  • Study skills tips and training
  • Writing help and workshops
