Sometimes the smartest students at SMCC still have problems succeeding in the classroom.

Getting a college education is not only built around what you learn but how you learn. And that’s where the SMCC Learning Resource Center (LRC) comes in.

The LRC houses a collection of programs and services created specifically to help our students excel.

Having trouble understanding the material or keeping up in your classes? Visit the Learning Center for assistance from any of the tutors who are happy to assist you!

Having trouble expressing your thoughts on paper? Spend some time in our Writing Center—we have experts that can help you sort through your thoughts and find the right words.

The Learning Resource Center is the place to go for all of these and more. We’ve got free workshops every week on a wide variety of topics designed to help.
