Tough courses getting to you?

Supplemental Instruction (SI) can help students become more confident and develop useful study strategies in the following subjects:
  • Nursing
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Physics
  • Math
They’re regularly-scheduled, informal reviews where students can:
  • Compare notes
  • Discuss readings
  • Get organized
  • Predict test items
  • Have FUN

It’s a great way to brush up on course content, so visit the ARC (Rincker 206) to grab a schedule of dates, locations and times for available SI components.


How can SI help?

It’s all about insider information. SI sessions are led by students who’ve successfully completed your course — with the same professor. Simply put: they’ve been there. It also improves:

  • Study strategies and time management.
  • Unique note taking and memory aids.
  • Anticipating test questions.
  • Vocabulary development.
  • Helps students become more independent thinkers by assisting them to develop and use course resources (lecture notes, tests, quizzes, labs, etc.) effectively

Who should attend SI?

Everyone in a course that offers SI! It’s help for hard courses, not struggling students, so don’t be afraid to stop by.

Make the Most of Your SI Session

  • Here are some tips that will make the most out of your SI session:
  • Hour-long sessions are offered 1-2 times a week and you can come as often as you’d like. And if you need more help, swing by the SI leader’s weekly office hours.
  • Come on time and prepared with any questions!
  • Use SI as an opportunity to meet other students in your class and form study groups.
  • Use the strategies used in SI in your own study sessions.
