Refresh offers students the chance to improve their grade point average (GPA) by retaking one four-week
intensive course in which they received a D, F, or W. The higher grade will replace the non-
passing grade. A limited number of courses are selected for the winter and summer sessions and are offered for free. Eligible and interested students should speak to their academic advisors.


Supplemental Instruction (SI) is peer-facilitated study sessions. SI Leaders are students
who have previously taken the course (preferably with the same instructor) with a high level of success.  Supplemental Instruction is different than tutoring in that the SI Leader does not
re-lecture or re-teach the material. Rather, the SI Leader facilitates group discussion
and activities that reinforce students’ understanding of the material, thus making the
sessions beneficial for students of various academic abilities – not just those who are

The 1G Collective is a mentor program for students who are the first in their family to attend a four-year
college.  The program guides students through their first year, and beyond, through one-on-one
mentorship with faculty or staff, connections to Fontbonne University resources, workshops, and social events.


Peer academic coaching is designed to assist students through one-on-one support from other
students. Peer academic coaches are Fontbonne students who have honed their own learning
strategies, and then completed training in order to share their skills and help others excel academically. Students may create an account and schedule appointments with a PAC below.


A free four-week summer program centered on preparing students for college life at Fontbonne
