Due to the growing number of COVID-19 cases nationwide and here in New Jersey, Kean University is now conducting remote education for students and remote work for employees to minimize the density of people on all Kean campuses and reduce the potential health risk to our community. Please visit the "SI Session Calendars" tab on the right side of this page for supported courses and scheduling information.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a free, peer-facilitated academic assistance program designed to help students succeed in traditionally difficult courses. SI sessions are regularly-scheduled, informal review sessions that involve collaborative learning activities through which students can clarify course concepts and practice the types of study strategies that will help them truly master the information and skills required by the target course.
The sessions are facilitated by SI leaders—students who have previously done well in the course and who attend all class lectures, take notes, work closely with faculty, and act as model students. Studies have shown that students who attend SI receive a lower rate of D, F, or course withdrawals; earn higher mean final course grades; and graduate at a higher rate than those who do not attend.
