About ARC (Academic Resource Center)

The Academic Resource Center (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. 

The ARC will remain closed for the Fall 2020 semester. We will offer Supplemental Instruction sessions using Zoom – an online platform for video & audio conferencing. Sessions begin on Sunday, August 30, 2020 and go through Friday, December 11, 2020. There will be no sessions on Sunday, September 6th & Monday, September 7th, over Fall Break (November 22 - November 29), and during finals week. The full SI session schedule can be accessed from the ARC website or you can click here for a printable copy of the full Fall 2020 schedule. The Zoom links for each session can be found on each course's SI page within Tutor Iowa.

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

What to Expect:

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.
