What is SI?

Historically difficult entry-level courses are identified for the SI program and then a series of weekly study sessions are conducted by a faculty approved student who has already successfully passed the course.

Who can attend the SI sessions?

Any student who is currently enrolled in a designated SI section of a selected course. (This can be determined by looking in the schedule of classes for a class section with the letters SI attached)

Does it cost money?

No, it is free to any student enrolled in the specified class.

Why should I go to the SI sessions... I am a pretty good student anyway?

Research indicates that students earn one-half to one full letter grade higher if they attend SI sessions regularly.

Do I have to attend the sessions or will the instructor know if I don't?

No, attendance is voluntary. No, the instructor does not receive any information from our program about who is or isn't attending the sessions.
