Important guidelines regarding science lab experiments On-campus science tutors cannot assist with running lab experiments, nor can students bring lab equipment into tutoring rooms due to safety concerns. If you need a place to run lab experiments, please arrange that with your instructor or contact the Science Department for assistance.

ALC Workshop Series 

These workshops are designed to help improve students’ academic preparedness, understanding of technology at CCA, promote skill development, and more. For workshop topics and dates, visit ALC Workshop Series Schedule.

 

SI: Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a non-remedial approach to learning that supports students toward academic success by integrating “what to learn” with “how to learn.” SI consists of free, regularly scheduled group study sessions driven by students’ needs. Sessions are facilitated by trained peer leaders who utilize collaborative activities to help students develop effective learning strategies while engaging with the most difficult course material. SI is currently offered in select sections of English Composition I and College Biology I.

 

Resource Videos & Guides

The ALC offers the following "How to" videos and guides related to grammar, writing, math, and other college success resources:
