Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic program that provides free, regularly scheduled review sessions for specific courses taught at Auburn University.
Review sessions are held 1–3 times per week and are led by undergraduate students who excelled in that course in a previous semester. Each SI Leader attends class with the current students and generally holds two 1.5-hour review sessions every week.
Supplemental Instruction sessions are optional to attend, and they provide a relaxed, peer-led environment where students can collaborate and grow in the knowledge of their subjects. Students who regularly attend SI sessions usually gain better study habits, stronger connections with other Auburn students, and improved grades.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a program that is intended for all students in the class, not just those doing poorly. The SI program strives to reduce rates of attrition for courses with high failure rates, to instill study skills that students can carry on to other classes, and to help students establish relationships with peers.
