An Auburn University Montogomery and Auburn University Partnership
The Supplemental Instruction (SI) program provides peer-facilitated review sessions led by qualified and trained undergraduate SI leaders. These leaders sit in on undergraduate classes that they have already passed and encourage students to practice and discuss course concepts in weekly review sessions. SI sessions are open to all undergraduate students in the course who want to improve their understanding of the material and surround themselves with other students who are focused academic performance and their grades. Review sessions are professor specific, meet once or twice a week during fall and spring semesters, and are available at no charge. No appointment is necessary, so students may simply show up. National and Auburn University statistics have shown that students who regularly attend SI sessions improve retention and test scores, but only when they attend on a regular basis.
The rule of thumb is for every ONE hour spent in class students should be studying TWO hours outside of class each week (i.e. 15 hours/week of class=30 hours of studying outside of class).

Courses selected for SI are introductory courses in which undergraduate students are expected to perform well in order to progress in their major and/or meet their program's requirements. SI is available to assist undergraduate students in learning the course material and performing well in the class.
