The Summer Institute in Science and Mathematics, started in 1993, is a unique program designed to provide courses in a time compressed format (the 15-week semester is compressed into four or six weeks). Students attending the Institute benefit from personal attention from faculty, small lecture and lab classes, and a peer tutoring program. Courses begin mid-June and end early August. Courses offered in biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics are those required for science majors and pre-professional programs (pre-medicine, pre-dental, pre-optometry, pre-pharmacy, pre-vet, etc).

Biology—(Refer to Biological and Environmental Sciences Program)

Chemistry*—(Refer to Chemistry Program)

*This department is ACS certified.
