Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic support program that uses peer-assisted study sessions to enhance student success in larger, historically difficult courses at LSSU. SI sessions are regularly scheduled out-of-class review/study discussion sessions that are open to any student enrolled in a course for which SI is offered (attendance is voluntary).

Supplemental Instruction sessions are facilitated by SI Leaders, students who have successfully completed the course(s) for which SI is offered and come with recommendation of the professor. SI leaders conduct informal study sessions based on the needs of the students who attend; students may compare and develop their class notes, discuss reading or lecture content, develop study materials, prepare and take sample quizzes by predicting test questions. The SI leader may provide study guides or sample problems for students to work with during or outside of the sessions.

For more information on the SI program at LSSU please call Amanda Methot at 906-635-2366 or email at .

SI session hours vary by course and semester.
