Support Your Course

A collaborative learning approach can help your students excel. They can gain an enhanced understanding of current course material and study skills to assist them throughout their college careers.

 

How Courses are Selected

When choosing classes for Supplemental Instruction, we prioritize challenging, high-enrollment courses that are required for students to progress in their major. The courses tend to be historically difficult, regardless of who is teaching them or how they are being taught. 

If Your Class is not Supported 

Contact sasscpln@mailbox.sc.edu to discuss adding support for your course.

Benefits For Your Class

SI sessions are designed to assist undergraduate students who are struggling with the material, as well as high-achieving undergraduate students who want to maintain their A in the class. The goal is to boost student comprehension and success.
