Student holds up sticky note during study session in the LRC

The Learning Resource Center offers two unique courses to promote college success for students. LC 112 was created for our first-semester students to learn good habits and success strategies as they transition to college. LC 113 was created for students who find academic difficulty or difficulty in adjusting to the rigors of college academics. Both courses give students credit towards graduation.
