Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction is a series of review sessions for students taking historically difficult courses. If you attend SI sessions regularly, chances are you'll earn a better grade and develop better understanding of course content as well as more effective ways of studying.

SI Testimonials

Gina was a very strong leader in the SI sessions. She went above and beyond to make sure her students were understanding concepts and even adjusted some of her times for them! She was the best SI I have experienced at SU.
Ann did a great job making sure we understood the difficult topics within molecular genetics. She is very knowledgeable and does a great job incorporating the whole class into the plan for a given session. I would not be doing as well as I am in the class right now without this extra help.
Lydia is a phenomenal SI. She greets everyone that comes to the sessions. Polite and knowledgeable when asked questions. Gives everyone a chance to complete study assignments before reviewing as a group. I recommend her to all my friends that are in INFO 211.

The Center for Student Achievement will follow the same SI session schedule available on this webpage with SI sessions facilitated via Zoom. Please anticipate consistent communication from your course's SI leader with more information and instructions.

SI Partners for Success

SI is a peer academic enhancement program used by hundreds of colleges and universities throughout the world. Students who have performed well in historically difficult courses are nominated to be SI leaders by their faculty members. SI leaders are then paired with an instructor, attend all class sessions, and facilitate three hours of study sessions each week, open to all enrolled students. SI offers weekly structured study sessions where students can:

  • ASK questions, discuss and practice content
  • LEARN strategies and skills to study
  • SUCCEED: Participants often earn higher grades

SI is provided for all students who want to improve their understanding of course material and improve their grades. Attendance at sessions is voluntary. It's a chance to get together with people in your class to compare notes, to discuss important concepts, to develop strategies for studying the subject and to test yourselves before the professor does, so that when he/she does you'll be ready. At each session, you will be guided through this material by your SI leader, a competent students who has previously taken the course.
