The Exploratory Student -Provisional Program (EXP2) is designed to provide academic support to a select group of students who show potential for college-level work but who do not meet regular University admissions requirements. Without such an opportunity, these students would not be able to attend the University. EXP2 provides students with academic support services during their first year that are designed to assist them in meeting SIU undergraduate requirements and in progressing toward graduation. Services include mandatory academic coaching, advising, mentoring and tutoring for students as they take college-level courses that apply to their intended degree programs. Motivated and committed students will find academic advisors and other staff members who will work with them to take them from where they are to where they want to be.
