Supplemental Learning Assistance
Workshops, Directed Study Groups, and Directed Learning Activities for students

Post

Supplemental Learning Assistance (SLA), comes in three forms: Workshops, Directed Study Groups (DSG), and Directed Learning Activities (DLA). Workshops and Directed Study Groups are group activities which last 60 minutes and are by appointment only. Directed Learning Activities last a minimum of 90 minutes and include a follow-up tutoring session with an instructor or tutor; No appointment is necessary.

SLAs are tailored to each English (105, 105AX, 801A, 801B) and Reading course level (82, 881, 883), so students must ask for the appropriate level and topic. To use this assistive service, please review the following topics of instruction before you plan your next visit. An LBCC Student ID number and photo ID are required. 

Note: The Success Center staff stops handing out DLAs one hour before closing. And no more than one DLA per subject may be completed per day.
