Supplemental Instruction Application
Applications are reviewed starting week five of the semester prior to proposed implementation (e.g. week 5 of Fall 17 for a Spring 18 implementation).

SI works best for courses that meet the following criteria:

1. High enrollment (usually 50 or more students)

2. High risk (D, W, F percentage is in high double digits and/or a large number of students fail the course)

3. Bottleneck course (required for GE, a high stakes major prerequisite, or frequently failed/repeated major requirement)

4. Supportive professor (willing to meet regularly with the SI leader, allow the SI leader to make announcements about SI in class, and encourage students to attend SI)

5. Strong interest/demand for learning support outside the classroom from students in the course (for SI to be effective, students need to participate actively and voluntarily in SI sessions)

6. Fully funded. Cost of 1 SI Leader = $13.50/hour X 12 hours per week X 16 weeks = $2,592 + $300 materials and supplies (textbooks, markers, etc.) = $2,892

Instructors are asked to meet weekly with the SI Leader to help provide support for content related instructional activities for SI sessions. If there are 3 or more sections being supported by SI in a specific department, a faculty liaison from that department would be helpful to meet with the students to provide content related session strategies
