Supplemental Instruction

What is Supplemental Instruction?

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a program especially designed for large lecture classes. SI Leaders regularly attend class along with students in order to take notes and keep up with class discussions. Our SI Leaders then offer four (or more) review sessions each week to review course material and provide personal attention to student questions. Our Access to Success data has shown that students who regularly attend SI sessions receive higher course grades.

UWM research shows that SI participants  stay in college and graduate in higher numbers than nonparticipants.

How do I get involved?

Before the start of the fall and spring semesters, we will post the corresponding 2018 Supplemental Instruction table where you will locate your course and the available Supplemental Instruction times. You may attend any of the weekly SI review sessions listed for your course. Because SI groups discuss current course content, we recommend you attend at least once each week for best results.

You may also reserve a spot in a weekly SI review session by making an appointment.PAWS-black-revised3_1

Finally, arrive at the review session on the date and time listed in the SI schedule. Each Supplemental Instruction review session will last 50-60 minutes.
