What is Supplemental Instruction?
Supplemental Instruction (SI) uses peers to assist with group study sessions. They are called SI Leaders, and are students who have previously been successful in the course. While you are taking the course, the SI Leader also attends to be aware of the topics being covered. They lead group study sessions outside of class to review key ideas, explain difficult topics, and help prepare for exams. Research has shown that students who participate in SI are more likely to pass and to have higher GPA’s than those who don't participate.
SI is currently being offered in select math and science classes. Check with the ASC to find out which specific courses and sections will offer SI.
A calendar is available for all currently scheduled SI sessions. Even if you are not in a section that offers SI, you can still attend, but the material may vary from your section due to differing schedules and paces of instructors.
