Academic Support

Supplemental Instruction and Study Group Sessions

The OAS is pleased to announce that we will be facilitating Supplemental Instruction sessions for all sections of Human A&P for Allied Health, General Biology, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, CSCI 180, and additional courses listed in the schedule below.  

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic support program that targets traditionally difficult courses, courses with high D, F, and W rates. A trained peer tutor attends the lecture class, takes notes, and facilitates study sessions for the course. All students in the course are encouraged to participate in the study sessions. The SI program has had resounding success. In one course, the regular attendants received a course average of 3.02, while those who did not attend SI sessions received an average of 1.6.

Additionally, there will be structured study group sessions for a variety of subjects, including Music Theory and College Physics. Trained peer tutors facilitate the sessions, guiding the members and helping them find answers to their questions and make a regular habit of studying.

Students do not need to sign up to attend these sessions; they can simply show up during the scheduled time for the session. Locations of the sessions are listed by the session time.

Current Supplemental Instruction Sessions Fall 2021

This schedule begins on Sunday, August 22. Sessions will end on Sunday, November 21. There may be changes to this schedule, so please check this page regularly or contact the SI leader directly.  Zoom links can be found in the course Canvas pages.

Session times and days are listed. Please contact oas@xavier.edu for details.
