Academic Support

Learning Resource Center

The Learning Resource Center is the cultural center of the college. It is home to the Library, Learning Assistance Center, Community Gallery of Art, Testing Center and the Office for Students with Disabilities. The library is located on the second floor of the Learning Resource center, where students can use the computer lab, study in quiet areas or meet with classmates to do group projects. Reference librarians are available to answer research questions and direct you to periodicals, books, AV materials and other materials for check out. The circulation desk is located on the first floor, just inside the Library.

Tutoring and Testing Services

The Tutoring and Testing Centers provides tutoring and testing services to support and complement classroom instruction, including services for students with disabilities. The Testing Center also administers tests to people wishing to enroll at CLC or to earn a GED.

Office for Students with Disabilities

If your son or daughter had an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or received special services for a disability during high school, or if he or she has a disability, help is available from the CLC Office for Students with Disabilities (OSD). Although parents are welcome to accompany students to meetings with the OSD staff, we encourage students to advocate for themselves and begin to take a greater role in seeking out services now that they are in college.

Coaching for Academic Success

Students in pre-college/developmental math, English and ELI classes are automatically assigned to an academic success coach.  Coaches help students build confidence, guide students on time-management strategies and connect students with CLC resources.  Coaches also contact students about early alert notifications from faculty. Early alerts are related to academic performance on assignments and exams, class attendance, understanding course material and other areas where students could benefit from additional support.
