Get engaged with Supplemental Instruction opportunities.
Supplemental Instruction provides small group tutoring assistance for help in some of Southwest’s most difficult courses.
There is also an opportunity to become a Supplemental Instruction (SI) Leader for a class that you really enjoyed taking in a previous semester.
To qualify to be an SI Leader, you must maintain a minimum of 3.25 GPA, have previously earned an “A” in the course of instruction, and have already earned a total of 15 or more credit hours.
