Q: Why should I attend SI?

  • Students who consistently attend SI (10+ times a semester) score on average of half a letter to a full letter grade higher than those who do not.
  • SI is used at universities across the U.S. and internationally, and there is a wealth of data proving it is effective.
  • SI Leaders have taken the class before and performed well in it, often with the same professor. They have a proven track record in this and other classes at Texas A&M.
  • It is an opportunity to study in a group.
  • It is a free academic resource.
  • It is an opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.

Q: How do I know if there is SI for my class?

If your class has SI, on the first day of class, your SI Leader will announce when sessions will take place. You may also look HERE for a list of classes supported by SI and the session schedules.

Q: Can I get notes from my SI Leader?

No. SI Leaders will not give out notes to students. 

Q: Do SI Leaders tell the professor if I attend or not?

Choosing to attend and identifying yourself as an attendee is your choice. While you will sign in each session, this information is collected to show the effectiveness of the SI program and is not given to professors. 

Q: I missed class. Can I just attend SI?

Missing class and attending SI alone will not help you in any way. SI Leaders do not re-lecture the material. Not only would you gain little from attending the session, you would have little to contribute.
