What’s your commitment?
An integral part of the PILOT program is the fact that you are joining a team. In order for the team to be effective, all members meet for two hours weekly as a group with their team captain. You are expected to attend every session. Two excused absences are allowed during the semester, after which you will be dropped from the program.
How do you register?
Take the registration survey associated with your course to acknowledge your understanding of the program and to indicate your availability for groups offered this semester. Participants are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority given to freshmen. If you are interested in multiple sections of PILOT, fill out all surveys of interest and indicate your first choice. You will be placed in all groups requested, if possible, but not until everyone receives at least one session.
Initial registration for PILOT will close on Monday, September 8, 2014. You will receive an email by Friday, September 12, 2014 with your PILOT session assignment. Registration for Linear Algebra, Materials Chemistry, Biostatistics, and Epidemiology will close on Tuesday, September 9, 2014 at 9:00am.
Select the course you are taking to access the survey. Please make sure to check the course and section number so that you are taking the appropriate survey.

Due to limited placement, please drop your current PILOT session before registering for another.
If you would like to drop your PILOT Learning session, please complete the PILOT Learning Drop survey.
We are also running AutoPILOT for several courses. AutoPILOT is a version of PILOT Learning where students work together without an official leader. Instead, a “leader-participant” is designated to simply help with logistics and to try to keep the group together and motivated. This innovation was developed by Hopkins students and is a way to continue to build relationships and work to master course material together.
The courses listed below are being supported by this program this semester. Please contact Neil Rens to participate in this program this semester.
- Organic Chemistry (030.206)
- Transport Phenomena I (540.303)
- Transport Phenomena II (540.304)
- Engineering Thermodynamics (540.203)
PILOT Learning Continued Registration surveys will open Wednesday, September 24, 2014.
