The SSC is located in rooms 410-412 and is open Monday & Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm; Tuesday-Thursday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, while college classes are in session during the fall and spring semesters. Interim and summer semester hours may vary.
• Computer work areas
• Individual and group study and tutoring areas
• Subject area resource materials
• Informal, supportive atmosphere
• Fully-accessible accommodations
A laser printer and computers with Internet access and most software programs required for MCC courses are available for students’ academic use.
Tutoring services are offered free of charge by MCC students who have successfully completed courses such as computer concepts, mathematics, sciences, business/clerical, and foreign languages. Subject availability varies by semester. For more information about the SSC’s Peer Tutoring Program, click here.
Writing assistance is available to provide suggestions and specific instructions to help students successfully complete writing assignments for many MCC courses. A student seeking assistance will need the instructor's requirements for the assignment and a detailed outline or working draft of the paper in order to work with a student writing assistant.
Math assistance is available from Arlo Hildahl, Mathematics Adjunct Faculty, during the fall and spring semesters. The hours for fall 2013 are:
• Mondays and Wednesdays from 11 am to noon; 1 to 2 pm; and 3 to 4 pm.
• Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11 am to 4 pm.
Services for students with disabilities are arranged on an individual basis. This may include testing and/or classroom accommodations—please speak with the Learning Services Specialist for more information.
Assistive technology is available for student use in the SSC. Audio textbooks are available to qualified MCC students through our institutional membership with Learning Ally.
For more information about any of the services listed above, feel free to contact a staff member in person, by phone or email.
