The Learning Center offers courses which assist students in developing the essential skills necessary for success at college.  The following courses are offered as Learning Center courses:

  • Basic Math (MTH001)
  • Basic Grammar & Punctuation (ENG005)
  • Basic Writing Skills I (ENG098)
  • Geometry (MTH009)
  • Introduction to Reading (RDG020)
  • Spelling & Vocabulary Skills (ENG017)

All Learning Center courses are mastery based and learner centered. They are competency-based courses, which means that students advance through the course upon mastering a particular skill. Students can move through the course as quickly as they master the required material. A Learning Center instructor will be available to help whenever assistance is needed.

Students meet with instructors on a regular basis for instruction, to seek assistance and to discuss progress. Instruction is provided on either a one-on-one or a small group basis.

Only A (90%+), B (80%+), and F grades are assigned to students.

      Learning Center Attendance

Students enrolled in Basic Math or
Basic Writing Skills I are required to attend class at the scheduled day and time listed on their Student Course Schedule. However, students can expect to spend additional time each week working on their course outside of class time. Basic Math and Basic Writing Skills I students may attend the Learning Center at any time during operating hours in addition to their regularly scheduled class time. Attendance will be taken each class period and will be recorded.

The "ARR" notation (also known as "arranged"), listed under the day and time on the Student Schedule, means an LC instructor will assist students in creating a schedule of attendance that best complements their class schedule. All Learning Center "ARR" courses are held   on campus. Attendance will be taken each class period and will be recorded.
