  • SI is a resource offered by Texas State's Student Learning Assistance Center (SLAC) and is available to any student registered in an SI-targeted course. Attendance is voluntary but is highly encouraged, as data collected has proven that students who attend regularly (at least one session a week) on average receive a final grade one half to a whole letter grade higher than their classmates who did not regularly attend.
