Supplemental Instruction (SI)

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a group session - led by an SI Leader - that meets two or three times a week to help students understand course material and learn how to study better. SI classes are optional, one-unit classes that can help you succeed in courses that most students have found difficult year after year. Students in SI Classes meet with an SI Leader either before or after the target class to work on learning strategies and critical thinking skills and apply them to the material covered in class.

How do I enroll?

Register for an SI section through MyCSULB.  In order to take an SI class, you must be enrolled in the course section that offers supplemental instruction.  Look up the class for which you want assistance in the Schedule of Classes. The "COMMENT" section will state whether an SI course is available. If an SI class isn't an option, tutoring or an SI Group may be available.
