Supplemental Instruction is an academic program that targets historically difficult courses to provide assistance with regularly scheduled, out-of-class, study sessions. These study sessions are facilitated by trained student leaders who in a previous semester showed mastery of that course material. Assistance begins during the first week of class and is open to all students in the course. Data kept at both Gordon State and the International center for SI in Kansas City shows that students who regularly attend and participate in SI sessions enjoy pass rates up to 60% higher than their classmates who do not attend SI.
