3 girls at desks during supplemental instruction - SSSHave you ever been a bit confused or overwhelmed in a class? Have you ever missed the grade you wanted by “just that much”? Have you ever felt that you studied for hours but found the test to be different than what you’d expected? If so, Supplemental Instruction could be just the solution for you.

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic support program utilizing peer-assisted study sessions to help students with traditionally difficult academic courses. SI sessions are an opportunity for students to work together with other classmates to compare notes, discuss readings, ask questions, develop organizational tools, and prepare for examinations.

Supplemental Instruction is typically offered in the following courses:

Biology 110 and 111

Chemistry 101 and 102

Math 151

Management 131

Sports Science 240/120

Here are a few things you should know:


SI Leaders are successful students who are responsible for leading a minimum of two 50-minute study session per week for a designated course.  SI Leaders attend all course lectures, take notes, and plan and facilitate quality SI sessions to assist students with course content and study skills.  SI leaders must also complete a training program and attend supplementary training during the semester.


SI is a paid, professional opportunity for student leaders who want to build rapport with an academic department, gain experience facilitating groups and teaching students, and review an academic discipline in preparation for an advanced degree.  SI Leaders typically work 6 hours per week, which leaves time for another job or other activities.
