Join Us!

The Physics Learning Center (PLC) has an application process to help determine which PLC resources best fit your needs. It includes learning about the general aspects of our program, filling out and submitting an application, and participating in a short meeting to go over your application. We encourage you to apply early to get the maximum benefit of being a part of our community.

If you are interested in joining the PLC, please:

  1. View the short video overview of the PLC. Note that the video was created by our PLC Peer Mentor Tutor Arianna Ranabhat. Also check out the Q&A section of our website.
  2. For Fall 2023, download the PLC Application for Fall 2023 (PDF) file. Please use the form below to submit it so that there are no delays.
  3. Complete the form including the table for your class, volunteer and work schedule. Use the free Adobe Acrobat Reader (using comments) or similar software to fill out the form. Alternatively print, complete, and scan the application using a scan-to-PDF app–make sure you have good lighting.
  4. Upload the completed PDF file using the form at the bottom of the page with both pages in the same file. Please keep the file as small as possible – less that a few MB’s (in Adobe Acrobat choose “save as” w/ reduce size option selected)

A staff member will contact you to confirm your submission and set up a virtual meeting to go over your application. After the interview you will have access to PLC resources.  Please upload the application using the form below. If you have not heard back from us in 2-3 days or have questions, please contact us at
