Supplemental Learning (SL)

Supplemental Learning is now being offered in specific historically-difficult first year courses. These are typically courses with an above average number of failing or withdrawing students.

What is Supplemental Learning?

Under the SL model, an SL leader is placed in your class to listen to the lectures. This leader is a student who has recently completed the course and has been recommended by faculty. Then at each SL session, the leader guides fellow students through the material covered in lecture with practice problems and other opportunities. The SL sessions supplement the lectures by giving students the opportunity to work collaboratively in small groups with the material, answer questions, and learn challenging class concepts.

Proficiency Testing

Proficiency tests are administered through the Testing Center.  Practice tests are available here:
