The College Discovery Program (CD) provides academic support to CD students who desire such service. All CD students who are on academic probation or enrolled in a basic skills (remedial) course are required to register for extra help.

CD's academic support is in the traditional one-on-one and small group format depending on tutor availability and students’ need. We have established student led study groups for students enrolled in the same courses. Please contact our Academic Support Coordinator to register for extra help, or to enroll in a study group.

What is expected of the student?

All students who register for help are expected to attend each session for the entire semester, to be on time for each session, and to be prepared. The learning assistant can be of most help to you when you bring your class notes, text book, and tell them what you do not understand. Remember that the learning assistants are there to help you and that you bear a great amount of responsibility in the learning process.

Where is it?

CD's academic support services are administered in the Learning Resource Center, S510. Walk in, make the first left you can, and look for the “College Discovery Academic Support” sign hanging from the ceiling.

Who do I contact to register?
