Supplemental Instruction Program
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a series of regularly-scheduled interactive and collaborative study sessions for students taking traditionally difficult classes. Students who regularly attend SI sessions earn higher grades than non-SI participants.
How are classes selected?
Courses selected for SI are introductory courses in which undergraduate students are expected to perform well in order to progress in their major and/or meet their program’s requirements.
