Visit the CAS website at for more information.

In an effort to improve student learning and persistence at LSU, the CAS supports faculty with practical strategies and effective resources incorporating these five principles.

  • Integrate learning strategies into instruction.
  • Create a student-centered learning environment by implementing active learning techniques.
  • Endorse the use of academic support resources.
  • Utilize technology to increase communication and engagement with students.
  • Provide early feedback and interventions to students with poor course performance.

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a series of weekly study sessions offered for students enrolled in historically difficult courses.

SI Sessions are:

  • Free, voluntary and open to all students
  • A great opportunity to improve understanding of material and course grades
  • An excellent way to meet other people in your class
  • Guided by an SI leader who has taken the course and is prepared to share with you what they have learned about how to study

The leader attends the class and works in close association with the instructor so that sessions are relevant to the material covered.

Find out more about SI by visiting our Supplemental Instruction page. If you're interested in learning more about SI for your course email

Students have access to online tutoring through NetTutor. Tutor availability varies, so please refer to the NetTutor website for schedules.
