Advising & Tutoring

Chemistry Student Abby Pepin with Cynthia Dowd

 

Balancing a chemistry course load along with the rest of your responsibilities can be challenging, but we are here to help. Whether the issue is personal, academic or related to career plans and opportunities, talking to your academic advisor is a good place to start.

We also offer tutoring options to chemistry students, in addition to university student services like the Academic Commons.

 

 


Advisors

Your academic advisor can support or direct you to the correct person to help resolve a problem.

Director of Undergraduate Studies

Dear chemistry majors and chemistry minors,

As we wind down the first half of a most unprecedented academic year, I hope that you continue to find moments of joy in these challenging times. Has the pandemic impacted your academic or career plans? Let me know. If we aren't able to resolve it within Chemistry then I'll do my best to be an advocate and an ally for you as you interact with the GW ecosystem.

A few updates as we approach Spring 2021 registration and the end of the semester:

  • Chemistry is offering two new courses, CHEM 3263W Biochemistry lab and CCAS 2190.11 Building a chemistry identity
  • Registration for CHEM 4195(W) requires an registration transaction form. Complete and sign an RTF(EZ) and email it to [email protected] for further processing.
  • I am now serving as the chemistry advisor for all chemistry majors and chemistry minors. Direct any registration and advising questions to [email protected]
  • Applications for UTA positions in CHEM 1112 are being accepted until December 5.  Click on this link to apply
  • Look for a ChemUndergrad Census in your inbox in December so that we can have up-to-date and accurate information on who you are so that we can better support your academic success while at GW and upon graduation.

Be safe and be well.

Cordially,

Dr. LaKeisha McClary

Office Hours

Don’t forget about office hours! Faculty set aside time each semester for student visits. If you’re having trouble with a course, need feedback on a project or simply want to talk through an idea, visit your advisor or professor. All department advisors are available by appointment or email as well as during regular office hours.
