- 1 hour of SI in approximately equal to 2.5 hours of individual study
- SI sessions are FREE
- SI is not remedial. SI benefits students of all learning levels
- SI support starts week one
Become an SI Leader
SI Leaders are students who’ve taken a course, done well, and demonstrate the desire and skills to help others. SI Leaders attend lecture sessions, as well as plan for and facilitate student sessions.
The benefits to being a SI leader:
- A better understanding of the course material, which improves success in related classes.
- Access to instructors outside of class; which can foster relationships that lead to independent study, research, letters of recommendation, etc.
- A paid on-campus job
- Only ten (10) hours/week schedule.
- Paid training before the semester begins.
