What is Supplemental Instruction?                                         

SI is an internationally recognized program of students helping students. The program focuses on certain courses that cover a large range of material in a short period of time.  Study sessions are held at regular times every week. SI leaders direct group discussions aimed at helping you the students enhance your understanding of the course material.

Studies have shown that students who attend SI sessions average one full letter grade above those who do not.
