    Academic Success


  • Your learning style, schedule and academic needs are yours alone, and they're constantly changing. But our academic service options are flexible enough to keep pace.


    Did you know that students who regularly participate in Supplemental Instruction (SI) sessions generally earn higher course grades and withdraw less often than non-SI participants.


    No matter how talented you are, sooner or later you're going to have questions. Like how to solve a pesky equation, take notes or better focus in class. The office of Academic Success helps traditional undergraduate, graduate, and adult students to make the most of their learning experiences at Capital University.

    At Academic Success we have one goal: to help you succeed. We’ll give you the services you need to shine in the classroom, in every subject and at every level.

      Supplemental Instruction

      Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic support program aimed at historically challenging courses and is designed to increase student performance and retention. SI provides regularly scheduled, out-of-class peer-facilitated study and review sessions facilitated by trained SI Leaders. 

      SI assistance is open to all students enrolled in the course regardless of ability. SI sessions integrate “how to learn” with “what to learn,” meaning that the focus is on discovering how to apply appropriate study strategies in addition to reviewing content material. Students who regularly participate in SI sessions generally earn higher course grades and withdraw less often than non-SI participants.
