Supplemental Instruction



Please contact Marsha Daughetee [] for SI schedule at Irvine Campus.


Supplemental Instruction (SI) offers FREE, out of class study sessions for traditionally difficult courses. Sessions are led by students who have successfully completed the course.


Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a series of weekly review sessions for students taking historically difficult courses. Sessions are facilitated by students (SI Leaders) who have already taken and done well in the course.

SI Leaders will guide you through class material in an environment where you are working with other students to discuss important concepts, compare notes, develop strategies for studying the subject, and test each other before you are actually tested by your professor.
