supplemental instruction program

The Supplemental Instruction (SI) program helps students find new ways to solve old problems. SI is offered on campuses around the world and targets historically difficult courses on each campus. Historically difficult courses are those that traditionally have high rates of D's, F's and W's as final grades.

Supplemental Instruction leaders are qualified upperclassmen who have already completed the course. They attend the class with students and then hold additional study sessions outside regular class meetings, all free of charge. The voluntary study sessions are conducted on a drop-in basis.

National statistics as well as our institutional data indicate that students who attend SI sessions regularly can expect to earn final grades up to a letter grade higher than their classmates who do not attend SI.
