What is Supplemental Instruction (SI)?
Are you ready to succeed? When registering for classes, look for the "i" on CampusNet for SI supported courses.

In these programs, highly trained SI Leaders attend class along with you and hold two to four SI/SLA sessions per week outside of class. Sessions include discussions, games, practice tests and other collaborative problem solving activities. Participants learn HOW to study along with WHAT to study.

TASC offers SI for select courses in:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Physics
  • Psychology


Supplemental Instruction (SI)

Supplemental Instruction (SI) Sessions provide additional academic support to a variety of classes. SI courses incorporate an SI Leader, usually a student peer or graduate student, into the course who attends all of the course lectures. The SI Leader then conducts 2 to 4 scheduled reviews sessions each week that follow the course lectures. The sessions are peer-led review sessions provided for selected courses. The SI sessions provide a chance for students to get together with classmates to compare notes, discuss important concepts, and develop strategies for studying the subject. The sessions are facilitated by a trained SI leader. The leader attends lecture each day, taking notes and listening closely to the professor. The leader does not re-lecture or give his/her class notes, but helps the students become independent learners by planning activities that encourage students to work together and process material themselves.
