SIP Employment - SIP Leader

Thank you for your interest in working with the Supplemental Instruction Program (SIP). The Supplemental Instruction Program (SIP) hires students who have demonstrated academic excellence, a desire for helping their peers, and who have great interpersonal skills and attention to detail.

We are paying particular attention to the following courses:

  • ARH 110, 112
  • BIO 105, 110, 111, 271, 277
  • CHE 103, 104, 111, 114, 351
  • KIN 291, 292
  • PSY 230


All applications are screened for eligibility. Students who do not meet the current employment requirements will be notified via e-mail. Students who pass the initial screening process will be placed in our applicant pool for two academic semesters. Because hiring takes place based on need, there may not be an opening at the time of your application. Should a need arise in the field that you have applied for, you may be contacted for an interview.

Requirements for consideration include:

  • Minimum overall GPA of 3.0
  • Minimum grade of "B+" in the course(s) SIP will occur in
  • One Faculty recommendation per discipline. Applicants will NOT be contacted for interviews until at least one recommendation is received.
  • Minimum availability of 10 hours per week
  • Attendance at paid training

Leaders must be able to attend all class times of the SIP course they are hired for, lead three weekly 50 minute SIP sessions, and attend other meetings as specified. Students hired as leaders with SIP are required to attend New Leader Training which will take place the weekend before classes start.
