Supplemental Instruction (SI)
What is SI?
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a peer-facilitated study group designed to impact the way students learn difficult content in a specific course. SI is attached to course sections to provide students with a structured approach for processing the course material assigned by the instructor.
Why Attend SI?
--Have questions answered about class material
--Improve study skills
--Build relationships in your class or major
--Engage in activities that promote creative learning
--Guaranteed study time to free up your schedule
- See national data on how low final course grades (D's, F's, and Withdrawals) drop in courses with SI support.

When do the SI Sessions Meet?
You can find the schedule here. Obviously it is ideal to attend an entire 50 minute session, but if you can only come for part of it, that's okay too. We look forward to seeing you. Bring a friend!
What is an SI Leader?
An SI Leader is a student who has previously taken the class and done well. The SI Leader attends the class and facilitates the SI session. Students wishing to be SI Leaders need to have a 2.5 overall GPA, have at least a B in the course, and have two faculty references. Interested applicants are encouraged to email Ben Conrick for more information. Being an SI Leader is a great way to serve your peers, gain leadership and other skills that will be useful for graduate school and/or the workplace.
