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 leader. 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.
Registration for Fall 2016 courses will begin September 1, 2016.
Note: PILOT sessions are not guaranteed. If your availability aligns with an open spot you will receive a placement via email. If not, you will automatically be added to the wait list.

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 AutoPILOT for the Fall 2016 semester. Please contact Micah Shaffer to participate in this program.
- Courses will be updated in September 2016
