Supplemental Instruction Classes in Math, Chemistry, Economics, Political Science etc.

Accepting applications for Spring 2019.

SI or Supplemental Instruction is a nationally recognized program. SI classes (University 60) are peer-facilitated group study sessions designed to help students master difficult subject matter in classes with traditionally low pass rates. Students enroll to receive one unit credit.

The sessions are conducted by sophomores, juniors, seniors or graduate students who have demonstrated superior competence in the subject area. SI leaders attend the targeted class, read the assigned material, and work with the professors. Sessions focus on understanding content, developing effective study strategies, improving note taking and problem-solving skills, and preparing for exams.

We are always looking for resourceful SI Leaders. If you are interested, download the application below.
