Supplemental Instruction (SI) Program

SI ProgamSupplemental Instruction (SI) is a free academic assistance program that utilizes peer-assisted study sessions. SI is a non-remedial approach to learning as the program targets high-risk courses rather than high-risk students.

SI sessions are regularly scheduled, informal review sessions in which students compare notes, discuss readings, work mathematical problems, develop organizational tools, and predict test items.

While participating in SI sessions, students learn to integrate course content and study skills while working together.

The study sessions are facilitated by “SI leaders”, students who have previously made an “A” or “B+” in the course and who attend all class lectures, take notes, and act as model students.

SI Leaders may serve several sections of the same course. While all students are encouraged to attend SI sessions, participation is voluntary.
