What is Supplemental Instruction (SI)?

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an international program offered by the Center for Learning And Student Success (CLASS) that provides peer-facilitated group study sessions for students enrolled in large, high-risk courses (30% D, F, and withdrawal rate).

One difference between SI and tutoring services is that SI leaders attend class along with the students they are tutoring. Each SI leader has already taken the course and earned an A or A-.  Sessions are offered multiple times each week.  SI is voluntary, free, and available to students on a drop-in basis.

Announcements about SI are made in targeted classes during the first week of classes, and sessions continue throughout the semester. SI sessions provide students with course-specific learning and study strategies, note taking and test taking skills, and the opportunity to study with peers.

FAU offers Supplemental Instruction (SI) in the courses listed below. Come by a session to learn more, have a great experience and earn higher grades in your classes!  Click on the course below to view the available SI session(s).
