Supplemental Instruction (SI)

What is SI?

SI is a weekly study group facilitated by a student leader. SI leaders are students who have taken the course and earned at least a B. They attend all the class sessions, so they know what's going on in your class. If you see them, say hi! 🙂

The goal of Supplemental Instruction (SI) is to help students learn how to succeed in traditionally difficult courses. Working with faculty, SI seeks to help students learn to solve problems, organize classroom materials, and develop effective study strategies. SI sessions are designed to engage students in the learning process and to create a positive, interactive, and stimulating learning environment. Therefore, the friendly SI leaders are trained in proactive learning and study strategies.

Fun Fact

Students who attend tutoring and/or SI 3+ times per semester earn 1/2 to a full letter grade higher than students who don't!

**SI sessions are available 8/27 – 12/6**
