Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental instruction is offered in courses that are historically difficult for students. In this effort, a former student who excelled in the area attends the class and then offers additional teaching sessions to students. These sessions are held at times that accommodate student schedules like weekends, evenings, etc. For more information contact the Academic Success Center.
