Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction provides weekly study sessions in a hybrid modality with some sessions online and some session in-person during the Spring 2022 semester to students enrolled in core and gateway courses at UTSA. Participation is voluntary and students are encouraged to attend consistently. Students who attend SI sessions regularly tend to average one half to one full letter grade higher than their classmates who do not attend SI.

SI Session

In SI sessions, students work together to improve learning strategies by reviewing lecture notes, text material, and preparing for tests. SI sessions are guided by students who successfully completed the course work and who are trained to facilitate collaborative study groups. SI sessions provide an opportunity for you to learn how to learn while learning what to learn.
