Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a free resource that helps Marian University students be successful in historically difficult courses through peer-facilitated study sessions.

SI allows students to meet during regularly-scheduled times in an informal setting to compare notes, discuss course readings, and predict exam content.

SI is available during the fall and spring semesters. These services are not available during finals week, holidays, and official school closings.

It is recommended that you attend at least one SI session per week. Benefits include: better understanding of course material, raising course grades, and getting to know your peers.

Students, if you are not able to attend an SI session due to scheduling conflict(s), please reach out to your SI Leader for any additional times they can be available to assist.

Interested in becoming an SI leader?

SI leaders attend all course lectures and facilitate two (2) one-hour review sessions each week outside of class. SI leaders are required to plan weekly sessions, communicate regularly with the university's director of academic engagement, attend SI training sessions, and participate in observation reviews. We anticipate that SI peer leaders will spend eight hours per week fulfilling their responsibilities.

The requirements for SI leaders are:

  1. Be a full-time Marian University student.
  2. Maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0.
  3. Course competency- course completion with a B+ or higher in SI course.
  4. Available for ten  hours per week,on campus.
  5. Faculty recommendation.
  6. Strong communication skills and desire to help others.

All interested students should obtain a faculty letter of recommendation and contact May Cheng, Director of Academic Engagement,
