Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction is a student facilitated study group that can help students acheive success in challenging classes. SI sessions:

  • Allow students to interact with one another and a student tutor in order to understand difficult concepts.
  • Allow students to work together to find an answer, reinforcing understanding of the material from class or textbooks. 
  • Are a place to continue discussions from class and focus on class material. SI Leaders are trained to guide students with activities and thought provoking questions. 

How effective is SI in helping students? For Chemistry 100 in a recent semester, students who attended SI regularly received a final class grade that was TWO LETTER GRADES HIGHER than students who never attended an SI. 

This Spring's SI Schedule is as follows:
