Supplemental Instruction/Title III Grant Support
SI can be used at any time throughout the academic year. No appointment is needed. Students arrive at the session or have access to speak with their SI leader during class time.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an internationally recognized academic assistance program designed to help students navigate historically difficult courses through additional exposure to, and practice with, course material in a group setting. The goal of supplemental instruction is to help students master course content while developing effective learning, critical thinking, and study strategies.
