Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic support program providing regularly scheduled out-of-class, peer-led study sessions for challenging courses. The free sessions, open to all students in the targeted courses, are held two or three times each week throughout the semester, and special study sessions are often added before exams. More in depth than tutoring and led by students who have mastered the subjects, SI sessions integrate what you’re learning in class with essential learning strategies. As a result, SI participants usually earn higher grades and withdraw from classes less often than other students. SI sessions are typically available for some 100- and 200-level classes in biology, chemistry and sociology. For a current schedule, call 934-8184 or visit www.uab.edu/si.
