Success Workshops

Do you feel your skill levels are not accurately reflected in your ACCUPLACER® placement assessment scores for math or writing? The Learning Services department has a workshop for that, and it's free! The ACCUPLACER® Test Prep Workshops are designed for students who have had previous exposure to the assessment topics in high school or college but may need a refresher. Students must have taken the ACCUPLACER® assessment once, but not twice, in the last two years to be eligible to attend.

Is attending a workshop the right move for you? While we cannot guarantee your scores will improve, many students who have attended these workshops in the past have seen significant improvements in their scores. Having higher scores means you can take your required courses sooner without having to worry as much about prerequisites. This translates to saving time and money.

Contact Learning Services at tutoring@sscc.edu or call 800.628.7722 x2882 or x2825 to reserve a spot for one of the sessions.

Search for Coaches

The directory provides both drop-in and online lab schedules as well as contact information for one-on-one coaching. The contacts are listed first by campus and then by academic discipline. When you locate a coach for your subject, simply contact the coach and make an appointment.

Drop-In Lab Schedule Spring 2022

While most labs focus on mathematics and writing, Learning Services also offers drop-in labs which are manned by coaches who can provide general coaching in all subject areas. When the drop-in lab coach can no longer serve the needs of the student, they will then serve as coaching ambassadors to help students connect with Southern State course-specific coaches or with virtual coaches through our online Canvas platform.
