Supplemental Instruction

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 uc-arc@uiowa.edu.

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a free resource that helps you figure out how to be successful in your course. You’ll meet with a fellow student (the SI Leader) who did well in the course. The SI leader will facilitate activities to help you better understand the course material and how to study smarter. You will compare notes with other students, get organized, and predict and prepare for test questions. The leader attends all class lectures and takes notes, so you can be sure that your leader knows what’s going on in your class and is working with the professor. The sessions are informal, and you can attend as many sessions as you like.

SI sessions take place in the ARC (Academic Resource Center) unless noted. The ARC is located in the Ground Floor, IMU to the right of Hills Bank.

To learn more, please watch our video "What is SI". For more information about Supplemental Instruction (SI), visit the SI website. Here is a full schedule of all SI sessions.
