Supplemental Instruction (SI) is provided through Learning Assistance Programs. SI sessions are offered for select courses each fall and spring semester.
SI Leaders plan and facilitate twice-a-week group study sessions for their assigned course. These sessions focus on building students' understanding of the course content through fun and interactive activities that students complete with their classmates. Students can also develop or improve their note-taking, test-taking, and study skills by attending SI sessions.
SI sessions are open to all students enrolled in a course-section supported by Supplemental Instruction. Research conducted by the International Center for Supplemental Instruction shows that students who regularly attend SI sessions tend to earn higher final grades and are less likely to withdraw from the course.
Southeast’s SI is only one of two Missouri schools to be accredited through the International Center for Supplemental Instruction.
