Supplemental Instruction

What is Supplemental Instruction?

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a type of academic assistance that targets traditionally difficult academic courses by providing regularly scheduled, out-of-class, peer-facilitated sessions. 

SI sessions are available to students in designated sections of targeted courses, as they are geared specifically to the content and style of a particular professor's approach.  SI Leaders are students who have taken the course before and are recommended by the professor.  Therefore, they know the material well and know how that particular professor teaches it.

Ask your professor if there is an SI assigned to your class!

  • National data shows that students who attend SI average from one half to one full letter grade above the average of the non-SI group.
  • You will be assisted by SI Leaders who will review lecture notes, help you prepare for tests, and discuss readings.
  • It's guaranteed study time.
  • It's free and you may attend as often as you like.
