Academic Support Services
SSC offers a variety of services to support students in achieving their academic goals. In addition to helping students improve their study skills and develop learning strategies to enhance academic achievement, assistance is also made available through these services:
- Supplemental Instruction (SI)
- Life and Learning Series Workshops
- Make-up Testing
Supplemental Instruction (SI) leaders act as facilitators by helping students develop and strengthen study skills and integrate effective learning strategies that are content specific. All students are encouraged to attend as many SI sessions as possible, as it is a voluntary program.
Tutors act as facilitators by supporting their peers in strengthening study skills, such as time management, academic goal setting and note-taking while studying specific course content. Tutoring sessions are drop-in format. If tutoring services are not offered, students will be informed and referred to the appropriate learning labs for assistance and/or encouraged to contact their faculty for further assistance.
Life and Learning Series Workshops
Workshops are offered throughout the quarter with topics such as time management, learning styles, study skills and test taking strategies. Please refer to the Supplemental Instruction (SI) and tutoring schedules for workshop dates, times and locations.
Project Success is an academic support enrichment program designed to assist students in achieving their academic goals. The program focuses on helping students develop effective learning strategies, identifying their learning style and improving their study, goal setting and time management skills through interactive workshops and individual one-on-one appointments.
*Academic support schedules are subject to change throughout the quarter. Students are directed to the Student Success Center (SSC) Blackboard site regarding the location and times for Supplemental Instruction (SI), tutoring and the various learning labs. Alternatively, a copy can be collected from the SSC in the CCE Bldg.
