Learning Assistance comprises in-house help provided by Jackson/Macon LACs and online help provided by the LACs and Thinkingstorm.

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 students, faculty and staff as providing valuable academic-support services.

According to a Spring 2023 survey, 93% of students who used the Jackson and Macon LACs were satisfied with the in-house/online assistance they received. Test proctoring provided by both LACs earned the same rating.

During 2022-23, 80% of students who used help (drop-in/by appointment) provided by the Jackson LAC passed the course(s) for which they gained assistance. Note: Statistics show that the earlier students seek help, the greater their success.

ThinkingStorm's online live tutoring earned a 94% success rate during Spring Semester 2023; its spring aggregated rating is 89%.

Fourteen of 16 (88%) MAT 152 (Statistics) students who took advantage of LAC and/or ThinkingStorm help at least once during Fall Semester 2022 earned a C or higher in the course. Thirteen of 14 (96%) students passed the course during Spring Semester 2023.
