Supplemental Instruction

The Learning Success Center offers Supplemental Instruction, often referred to as SI, for selected courses on campus. SI provides organized study sessions which are open to any students in the course and are led by undergraduates who are selected and trained to be SI leaders.

The main goal of the SI program is to help students learn the course material and improve their course grade. In addition, we assist students in improving their study skills. We also provide students with an informal, personal, small group learning experience that helps them feel connected to other students and demonstrates the power of group study.

Subjects with available SI sections include:

  • Accounting
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • History
  • Math
  • Physics
  • Psychology
