Our Programs

Supplemental Instruction (SI)

SI is a program that is attached to specific courses where students participate in collaborative learning exercises designed to complement the classroom experience. Structured weekly learning session are held to encourage students to work together to develop strategies to master course content and prepare for quizzes and test in more difficult general education courses including math, science, psychology, English, and literature.

Learning Accountability Program (LAP)

LAP is a comprehensive program to assist students in their transition to college studies, remediate learning gaps, adopt productive academic skills, and develop self-confidence via a personalized monitored structure. The purpose of the program is to offer structured support for incoming students on academic advisement and previously enrolled students on academic probation.

UMO Clinics

ARC Clinics are provided every evening from 7:00-9:00 p.m. depending on the weekday in math, science, business, and accounting. These are designated voluntary study times in which a subject matter expert is available to assist in the student’s studies.

Peer Tutoring

Face-to-face and virtual peer tutoring is available free of charge by request to all UMO students. Peer tutors can help students gain a greater understanding of material within a course that is hindering success.
