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 Fall 2023 survey, 89% of students who used the Jackson LAC were satisfied with the in-house/online assistance they received; 100% were satisfied with the Macon LAC's assistance. Test proctoring provided by both LACs earned a 100% rating.
During Fall 2023, 85% of students who used drop-in or by appointment help provided by Jackson LAC tutors passed the course(s) for which they gained assistance. Statistics prove that the earlier students seek help, the greater their success.
