Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction Program Overview

Supplemental instruction (SI) is an academic support program that targets historically difficult courses. It is based on a non-remedial approach to learning enrichment tha increases student performance and retention.

SI offers regularly scheduled, outside-of-class review sessions to all students enrolled in a targeted course. SI study sessions consist of informal groups in which students review notes, discuss readings, develop organizational tools and prepare for examinations.

Students learn how to integrate course content with reasoning and study skills.

The SI sessions are facilitated by “SI leaders,” students who have already successfully completed the targeted course. SI leaders attend all class lectures, take notes and serve as model students for their classmates.
