Programs and Services
Lansing Community College's TRIO program provides the support to help you meet your educational goals. TRIO's services are:
Academic advising synthesizes and contextualizes students' educational experiences within the frameworks of their aspirations, abilities and lives to extend learning beyond campus boundaries and timeframes.
TRiO Tutoring is available for active participants in the LCC TRiO Program. TRIO tutoring is free of charge and can assist students with various academic subjects including math, science, writing, and others. If TRiO tutors are not available in the courses requested, efforts will be made to find alternative sources of assistance. TRiO tutors will help students seek help from LCC Tutoring Services, the LS-ARC, the MAC, the Writing Center, the academic departments, and if necessary, the ODSS. In addition, students can receive help with reading, note-taking, time management, and test-taking strategies. Tutoring takes place in the TRiO Learning Center with a drop-in format. During drop-in tutoring, TRiO tutors will be available for intermittent help with questions you have. Tutors move from student to student, so you will not receive sustained one-on-one attention. You are encouraged to come to tutoring with questions prepared and also to be patient and willing to work on your own or in small groups while tutors are assisting other students. Benefits of the group atmosphere for students include students learning from each other, receiving a diversity of ideas and points of view, and gaining an appreciation for differences in backgrounds, personalities, and intellectual styles.
Educational Development Plans (EDP)
The EDP is the document we use at Lansing Community College to summarize the courses you will taken and when you will take them. It is based on your goal and the time and money you are able to commit to your education. Should your goals change, it is important to update your EDP so it stays current.
SSS College Success Tracks
There are three SSS College Success Tracks designed to assist and guide students to develop essential college success strategies and to explore academic, careerrelated and personal development topics. Placement into one of the three SSS College Success Tracks is based partly on assessment test scores, number of earned credits, type of courses taken, and overall cumulative GPA. Each SSS College Success Track is a progression of content, skills learned, and overall academic awareness from the previous track.
Student Development Courses
Student Development courses promote personal growth and assist with academic and career goals. They are generally one or two credits, with many offered conveniently on the weekends, evenings and on the Internet. They offer an opportunity to work on personal growth and development issues in a group setting. In SDEV, we understand that many students have families, jobs and other responsibilities that make returning to college a difficult undertaking. Our goal is to help make your transition into college a successful one.
Student Development courses will help you explore your personal potential. They can help you to take an active role in defining what is right for you.
