Our Learning Support program is guided in meeting the special academic needs of its student constituency by a well defined statement of purpose consistent with the overall mission of the college.
The instructional components of the program are decentralized and function as an integral part of the college's academic program. Writing and reading instruction is provided by the Humanities Division, mathematics courses are taught by the Mathematics Division and study skills instruction is provided by the Behavioral/Social Science Division. Developmental Counseling is integrated as a part of the college's office of Student Affairs.
The Learning Support program provides assistance to students in developing those academic and social skills necessary for the successful completion of college work. Courses and activities are designed for students who lack minimum skills, as defined by the Tennessee Board of Regents, in reading comprehension, writing communication, mathematical computation and study skills. Services provided include academic assessment, academic placement and counseling-related programs and activities. The division is decentralized and integrated throughout the academic and student affairs units.
