Supplemental Instruction

The Supplemental Instruction (SI) program provides academic support to traditionally difficult courses through peer-led study groups. These study groups are led by an SI Leader, a student who previously performed well in a course and was nominated by a faculty member to support the class for future semesters. The SI Leader gets paid to attend class, take notes, and assist students with regular collaborative study group sessions, usually before or after class. This service is provided at no cost to students and faculty, and studies have shown that students who regularly participate in SI sessions perform on average a full letter grade better than students who don’t take advantage of the service.

Students must be enrolled in a class that offers Supplemental Instruction in order to participate in the SI sessions. See below for course offerings.
