About ARC (Academic Resource Center)

COVID-19 Update:

The Academic Resource Center (ARC) will be closed while classes are virtual (starting Saturday, March 14th). We will continue to offer Supplemental Instruction sessions using Zoom – an online platform for video & audio conferencing. Online SI will start on Monday, March 30th and the SI session schedule will remain the same. It can be accessed from the ARC website.

Students enrolled in SI-supported courses will be receiving additional information via email, including details on how to access their virtual SI sessions prior to the 30th. 

If you are experiencing any issues around accessibility of virtual SI sessions, please contact the ARC team at


The ARC offers Supplemental Instruction for undergraduates at the University of Iowa. Supplemental Instruction (SI) is offered for a variety of courses. All of the sessions are free.

Note that MATH:1560 Engineering Math II: Single Variable Calculus meets in 4030 SC.

Sessions begin on Sunday, January 26, 2020 and go through Friday, May 8, 2020.

There will be no sessions over Spring Break (3/16 - 3/20) and no sessions during finals week.

What to Expect:

When you come to the ARC, you will be greeted by a receptionist. All students sign in before their SI session. We don't share your information with anyone. SI Sessions are led and facilitated by a SI Leader. When you are in your session, you will work with other students in the sessions through activities to help you better understand the material. You will also learn study strategies to help you in the course!

How to Prepare:

Bring your notes for the course and any other materials that you think will be helpful for you to have during an SI session.
