Online Multidisciplinary Success Center

Long Beach City College’s Multidisciplinary Success Centers support students enrolled in online courses that have a supplemental learning assistance (SLA) requirement. Supplemental Learning Assistance (SLA) provides students with the opportunity to further their understanding of topics presented in class by way of supplemental activities. SLAs come in three different formats. All online SLAs are in the form of a directed learning activity (DLA). These are to be worked on independently by the student and include a follow up with an MDSC tutor or instructional specialist.&
