What is SI?

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a peer-assisted study session program offered for courses with historically high attrition rates in which students often benefit from additional academic assistance.

SI sessions are led by students who have demonstrated a mastery of the course content and are recommended by department faculty. Student leaders attend lectures, take notes, read assigned materials, and help students integrate course content and study skills in a group setting.  Student leaders are trained in SI techniques created by the University of Missouri at Kansas City International Center for Supplemental Instruction

  • All SI sessions are free to registered Columbia College students.
  • Students can just show up to sessions at any point in the semester.

To learn more abut Columbia College's SI Program contact the AAC at 588-5088.

Students interested in becoming SI leaders should talk to their course instructor and  complete the AAC application packet on the AAC's Prospective Tutors page. 

Faculty interested in having SI for their course should contact the AAC Coordinator for more information.
