Coronavirus Updates: The latest information for students, faculty & staff

Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction is a series of weekly study sessions offered to students enrolled in historically difficult courses at UTSA. Attendance is voluntary and students are encouraged to attend as many sessions as they want. If you attend SI sessions weekly, chances are you'll earn a better grade. In fact, 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 review lecture notes and text material, prepare for tests and improve learning strategies. SI sessions are guided by students who successfully completed the course 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.

Become an SI Leader

Get paid to have fun, work a flexible schedule, make new friends and gain leadership experience by becoming an SI leader.

SI Leader applicants must meet all of the following minimum qualifications:

  • Overall GPA of 3.0 or above
  • Successful completion of assigned course with an A or B grade
  • Successful completion of 24 undergraduate credit hours (post high school)
