The SI (Supplemental Instruction) program targets traditionally difficult academic courses--those that have a high rate of D or F grades and withdrawals--and provides regularly scheduled, out-of-class, peer-facilitated sessions. SI does not identify high-risk students, but rather identifies historically difficult classes.
- Assistance begins the first week of the term.
- SI sessions are open to all students in the course and are attended on a voluntary basis free of charge.
SI leaders attend all class sessions, take notes, read all assigned material, and conduct three or more 50-minute SI sessions each week. SI sessions integrate how-to-learn with what-to-learn.
SI participants earn higher course grades and withdraw less often than non-SI participants. Also, data demonstrate higher reenrollment and graduation rates for students who participate in SI.
