SI Supported Courses

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic support model that utilizes peer-assisted study sessions. The SI program provides regularly scheduled review sessions on course materials outside the classroom. SI is a non-remedial approach to learning as the program targets high-risk courses and is available in select courses based on data related to past student performance and feasibility.

The peer learning support staff consists of tutors, academic coaches, and supplemental instruction leaders who are both undergraduate as well as graduate students. We are all concerned about our health as a community of learners, and therefore, during the coaching, tutoring, and SI sessions, we request that any student with fever, cough, or any respiratory symptoms stay at home. Please do not attend the session and place others in jeopardy. Instead, call UHS at 412 268- 2157 for consultations, and return to any of these sessions when you are feeling better and your health has improved.

All times are Eastern Time (ET)
Schedule subject to change.

Study Partners

Support for students to create and benefit from their own study groups

If SI is not available for the course you are seeking help in, consider forming your own peer study group. The SASC team can assist you in connecting with other students in your course who are interested in forming a study group. This level of support is open to any course where the instructor requests or agrees that such support is appropriate and students are interested in both leading and participating. Follow these steps to get started.
