Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an internationally recognized academic support program that targets traditionally difficult courses.  Students come together in regularly scheduled study sessions to compare notes, discuss course materials, develop creative study tools, practice problem solving, and prepare for exams.  These sessions are facilitated by trained SI Leaders that attend the course with students and prepare study materials for use during SI sessions.
 
  • SI increases course pass rates
  • SI reduces course withdrawal rates
  • Students earn higher final grades in SI sections
  • Persistence rates (Fall to Fall) are higher with SI sections
