Supplemental Instruction   

        Spring 2024 SI group photo

SI targets historically difficult courses and helps students integrate what to learn with how to learn as they interact with classmates in peer-led study sessions.

SI Leaders attend the class lectures and are trained to facilitate group learning.

Individual tutoring is usually based on the specific questions of an individual student. You can attend both SI and tutoring. 

SI Sessions are study groups facilitated by the SI Leader. Expect to interact, show your work on the board, or discuss problems in small groups. 

View this video to see more about SI at SDSU.

Yes, SI is free to all students. No need to sign up! Just drop-in!

SI Leaders have prepared study activities that fill the whole time period.  If you can, please try to arrive at the beginning. If you have a class conflict and need to leave early or arrive a few minutes late, the Leaders understand.

Most SI Sessions are in Love Library, LL-462 and LL-408. A few sessions are in Student Services West (SSW), especially right before exams when sessions become larger. Check the SI Session Schedules to see the calendars. Any location changes will be posted.



SI targets historically challenging classes with large enrollments, particularly classes that are important early in the major pathway or taken by first-year students. 

Supplemental Instruction (SI) was first offered at SDSU in 2015.

SI began at the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) in 1973. This  model of peer-assisted learning is practiced at more than 1,500 institutions in 29 countries.
