Seminars are live, virtual meetings you can have with your instructor and classmates to review course concepts. They are available to students enrolled in some standard, non-ExcelTrack programs.

As soon as you have access to your registered courses at the start of the preview period (the Sunday before the term begins), check your course syllabus to see if a weekly seminar is included in them. Your instructor may include seminars that are not weekly or may not include seminars at all.
