Instructional Services

Instructional Services provides academic resources to assist students to achieve their educational goals. It creates a foundation for the curriculum by using the college’s teaching, learning, and assessment processes to build a bridge between a student’s abilities and coursework demands. Independent learning is promoted by assisting students to develop strategies and processes transferable to multiple contexts.

Classes in quantitative literacy, communication, English as a second language, test-taking strategies, and medication calculation provide a foundation for success in the curriculum. Students can access further support during their academic careers through the Communication Resource Center, the Daniel M. Soref Math & Science Resource Center, and the Academic Nursing Resource Center, as well as through peer and instructor tutoring, course-based study groups, and workshops. Support services and accommodations for students with disabilities are also available. Students access these resources based on self-referral or referral from their advisor or instructors.
