The Student Success Center
The Student Success Center (SSC) at Marshalltown Community College strives to provide an academic support system for students who need help reaching their goals. The SSC is located in room 406 and is open Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4:30 pm while college classes are in session during the fall and spring semesters. Interim and summer semester hours may also vary.
• Computer work areas
• Individual and group study and tutoring areas
• Informal, supportive atmosphere
• Fully-accessible accommodations
A laser printer, computers with Internet access, and most software programs required for MCC courses are available for students’ academic use.

Subject availability varies by semester. For more information about the SSC’s Peer Tutoring Program, click here.
Writing assistance is available from Jamie Sass, English Adjunct Faculty, during the fall and spring semesters. She provides 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. Students are welcome to seek assistance at any stage of the writing process. Please schedule an appointment with Jamie at Jamie.Sass@iavalley.edu or through Donna Thompson, in the Student Success Center.
Math assistance is available from Arlo Hildahl, Mathematics Adjunct Faculty, during the fall and spring semesters. Hours may vary per semester and help is available by dropping by room 406.
Services for students with disabilities are arranged on an individual basis. This may include testing, alternative format textbooks, and/or classroom accommodations. Please speak with the Learning Services Specialist for more information.
