Supplemental Instruction (SI)

The SI program offers FREE peer-led collaborative study groups for traditionally challenging courses.  SI sessions are led by students who have completed and earned high grades in the targeted course. SI Leaders provide three regularly-scheduled group review sessions per week and assist in developing the skills to be a successful student.

The Supplemental Instruction (SI) Program:
  • Offers collaborative peer-led study groups
  • Holds three regularly scheduled review sessions a week for each challenging course
  • Sessions are led by students who successfully completed the courses
  • Sessions help students become stronger, independent learners
  • Sessions are welcome to all students at any point in the semester
  • Helps students score significantly higher than the students who do not attend SI sessions
