Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a peer-facilitated academic support program that features regularly scheduled course content review. SI utilizes a non-remedial approach that targets the most difficult courses—those with high rates of D and F grades or course withdrawals.

Unlike tutoring or other traditional academic support models, SI helps students of varying levels of academic preparedness face Lyon’s rigorous curriculum and maintain their grades. Lyon College SI sessions are held several times per week in classrooms throughout campus. SI is free to all Lyon students, and their informal nature allows students to focus on subject-specific material while simultaneously practicing transferable study skills in a safe, friendly environment. Participation is voluntary, confidential, and—most importantly—extremely beneficial.
