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 will be offered both in-person and virtually for the Fall 2021 semester. In-person sessions will be located in the Academic Resource Center (ARC) on the ground floor of the Iowa Memorial Union (IMU). Virtual sessions will be offered using Zoom. Sessions begin on Sunday, August 29, 2021 and go through Friday, December 10, 2021. There will be no sessions during Thanksgiving recess (Sunday, November 21, 2021 - Sunday, November 28, 2021) or during finals week (Sunday, December 12, 2021 - Friday, December 17, 2021). The full SI session schedule can be accessed from the ARC website or you can download a printable copy of the full Fall 2021 schedule. SI session days & times for individual courses and the Zoom links for virtual sessions can be found on each course's SI page within Tutor Iowa (see links below).
