Supplemental Instruction (SI)

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic support model that utilizes peer assisted study sessions (PASS). The PASS SI program targets traditionally difficult academic courses and provides regularly scheduled, out-of-class review sessions. The sessions are informal seminars in which students compare notes, discuss readings and develop organizational tools and predict test items.

Writing Center

The Academic Success Center provides support for ANY written assignment in ANY summer course. Tutors will focus on your thesis statement and organizational strategy before discussing citation issues or grammatical errors. Make an appointment with the Writing Center for an online tutoring session.
