Excel Through Supplemental Instruction

Increase your understanding of academic course material and sharpen your study skills through The University of Texas at Tyler's Supplemental Instruction (SI) program.

SI is a series of weekly peer-assisted study sessions in courses identified by previous students as difficult. The sessions are guided by an SI leader and are proven to be effective. UT Tyler students participating in SI have consistently demonstrated higher grades and course completion rates.

SI sessions are:

  • Designed to help improve study skills with the goal of improving grades.
  • A collaborative effort among classmates to compare notes, discuss important concepts, develop strategies to study the subject, and test themselves before the professor does.
  • FREE and voluntary for students who want to improve their understanding of course material and content.
