Supplemental Instruction

Increasing pass rates

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 Supplemental Instruction Leaders that attend the course with students and prepare study materials for use during Supplemental Instruction sessions.

  • Supplemental Instruction increases course pass rates
  • Supplemental Instruction reduces course withdrawal rates
  • Students earn higher final grades in Supplemental Instruction sections
  • Persistence rates (Fall to Fall) are higher with Supplemental Instruction sections
