Supplemental Instruction provides academic support for students in large, required, and/or challenging courses.  Faculty members collaborate with the SI Coordinator to identify potential SI Leaders for their courses.  SI Leaders are undergraduate students who have taken the course before and done well.  Each SI Leader works with a specific course.  The SI Leaders attend lectures, participate in class activities, and serve as model students for their peers.  SI Leaders also hold regular study sessions outside of class to help students develop study skills and master the course content.  Attendance in SI sessions is voluntary, but encouraged. 

SI Leaders earn $12 per hour for approximately ten hours per week.  Returning SI Leaders will have an opportunity to become Head SI Leaders and earn $14 per hour.  To be eligible, students must have taken the course before and done well (B+ or higher).

Request Supplemental Instruction for your Course:
