Supplemental Instruction

UCA offers students the benefits of a nationally-recognized student academic support program known as Supplemental Instruction–SI”– in designated UCA Core courses in Biology, Psychology, and Political Science. SI helps students improve study skills and reach their learning goals in these courses through the support of peer SI Leaders.
The International Center for Supplemental Instruction at UMKC defines SI as:

an academic assistance program that utilizes peer-assisted study sessions. SI sessions are regularly-scheduled, informal review sessions in which students compare notes, discuss readings, develop organizational tools, and predict test items. Students learn how to integrate course content and study skills while working together. The sessions are facilitated by “SI leaders”, students who have previously done well in the course and who attend all class lectures, take notes, and act as model students.

imagesA200QTXGSI is not tutoring, but rather assists students in being more successful in traditionally challenging courses.  Every student can benefit from participating in SI–in fact, many students raise their scores by an entire letter grade or more through SI If you are interested in enrolling in an SI section of these courses, please see the list of SI courses below or consult your academic advisor.
