Supplemental Instruction

  • Supplemental Instruction

    Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic support program designed to increase student performance and retention. SI targets historically challenging courses and provides FREE, voluntary, out-of-class peer-facilitated study and review sessions. SI assistance begins the first week of classes and is open to all students enrolled in the course. SI is not remedial in nature; instead, SI sessions are comprised of students of varying abilities.

    SI Leaders are model students of the subject who have already successfully completed the course and have demonstrated excellence. SI Leaders participate in an extensive training program, regularly attend the class sessions, and conduct regular SI sessions each week.

    SI sessions integrate “how to learn” with “what to learn.” Students who attend SI sessions discover how to apply appropriate study strategies as they review content material. A wealth of national data shows that students who regularly participate in SI sessions earn higher course grades and withdraw less often than non-SI participants.
