Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an internationally recognized academic success program. SI is a voluntary program that offers free, regularly scheduled study sessions for traditionally difficult courses. SI sessions are lead by current Wartburg undergraduate students who have successfully completed the course.
The SI leader will facilitate activities to help you better understand the course material and how to study smarter. You will compare notes with other students, get organized, and predict and prepare for test questions. The leader attends all class lectures and takes notes, so you can be sure that your leader knows what’s going on in your class and is working with the professor. The sessions are informal, and you can attend as many sessions as you like. Research indicates that students who participate at least three times during a term average one-half to one full letter grade higher and withdraw less than non-SI participants.
