Supplemental Instruction (SI) sessions are free, peer-facilitated group study sessions for certain historically difficult courses.
SI sessions are led by trained peer facilitators, SI leaders, who have already taken the course and earned a 'B' or better. Sessions are offered multiple times each week. SI is voluntary, free of charge, and available to students on a drop-in basis. SI is part of an international program that helps to boost student success in courses with more than a 30% rate of D, F, and withdrawals.
Announcements about SI are made in targeted classes during the first week of classes, and sessions continue throughout the semester. SI sessions provide students with course-specific learning and study strategies, note taking and test taking skills, and the opportunity to study with peers.
