We also offer a series of workshops to support First-Year students in their transition to CSUSM. In-person tutoring will start the third week of classes and run through the week before finals. Virtual tutoring is available all semester, including weekends and evening hours.

Supplemental Instruction (SI) 

 

Supplemental Instruction (SI) study sessions are offered weekly for this course. SI is an academic support program that provides peer-led study sessions to assist students in traditionally difficult courses. These study sessions are led by a student who has successfully completed this course and has been trained to facilitate group study sessions where students improve their understanding of course material, review and discuss important concepts, and develop effective study strategies to prepare for exams. Students who attend SI sessions weekly typically earn a higher final course grade than students who do not attend SI. SI is for everyone and open to all students enrolled in this class; attend early and often to ensure you never fall behind! SI study sessions begin during the 3rd week of the semester and are now being held in-person or virtually through Microsoft Teams. For more information about the schedule and delivery of SI study sessions, please talk to your SI Leader, __________, or visit the SI website.
