Learning Assistance comprises the Jackson and Macon LAC, the in-house Tutor Program, and Online Tutoring. 

Mission:  The Learning Assistance mission is to foster the development of critical-thinking skills, successful habits, independent learning, and positive self-efficacy that enable students to become lifelong learners and achieve success in future careers.

Vision:  The vision for Learning Assistance is to be recognized by SCC faculty, staff, and students as providing valuable academic-support services.

According to a Spring 2019 survey administered to students who used the Jackson and Macon LACs, 100% were satisfied with the assistance they received. Also, the LACs earned the highest mean - 4.62 out of 5.0 - on the 2019 Student Satisfaction Survey! They agreed with the statement “I am satisfied with the services available in the Learning Assistance Center (LAC)”.  

Also, the Spring Semester 2019 Tutor Program success rate is 94%! Success equals students earning at least a C in the classes for which they received tutoring.
