    The Scholar Enrichment Program (SEP) focuses on enhancement and retention of undergraduate students in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields. Workshops are offered to supplement the lecture sections of high-risk courses such as Calculus, Chemistry, and Physics. Over the years, the program has expanded to include key upper division courses, such as Organic Chemistry and Genetics. The workshops provide a relaxed atmosphere in a supportive environment of peers and facilitators. Students in the workshops are encouraged to collaborate in small groups as they work on daily assignments. In addition to workshops, SEP offers a study center, academic support, enrichment and study skills seminars, and the opportunity for students to participate in the student organization, SEPSA. Students admitted to taking SEP workshops are primarily sciences, technology, computer science, engineering, and mathematics majors but the program is open to all majors.
