Supplemental Instruction


At Salem State, we want you to succeed! That's why we offer Supplemental Instruction in some of our more difficult introductory courses. Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic assistance program that helps increase student performance and retention.  The program targets difficult courses which have a high rate of D or F grades or withdrawals, and provide regularly scheduled, out-of-class, peer facilitated sessions on campus.  SI consists of weekly review sessions led by trained students who have a firm grasp of the course material and study skills.  Research shows that participants consistently earn higher grades.  Take advantage of SI!
