Group study sessions

Participate in group study sessions (also known as Supplemental Instruction or SI) for select undergraduate courses. These weekly group sessions are facilitated by a peer mentor who has previously taken the course and provide students with an opportunity to work together on problems, compare notes, and discuss questions.

SI study sessions will start in September. Information about accessing the study groups will be provided in your classes and through course UM Learn pages.
