Academic Success


What is Supplemental Instruction (SI)?

Supplemental Instruction is an out-of-class review session that covers up-to-date class discussions, lectures, and content for select courses. SI covers test preparation, note-taking, and appropriate academic study skills.

When does SI meet?

SI is regularly scheduled with at least two sessions per course per week. Times vary according to student needs.

Where is it held?

Every attempt is made to hold SI sessions in or near the classroom in which the course is taught.

Who is involved?

SI leaders are students who have previously attended the course and know the professor. SI leaders attend all class sessions, take notes, and read all assigned material.

Why is SI important?

Research data indicates that students who regularly attend SI earn higher course grades and test scores. SI sessions are collaborative in nature and encourage interaction and discussion. Every student is encouraged to attend SI for classes in which they are enrolled. The sessions are free of charge.
