Important SEEK Learning Center Information & Requirements:

SEEK students of all class standings are welcomed and encouraged to use the Center’s services. All SEEK students may choose to attend SLC workshops (in-person and online), get help with assignments, and study in the Center. Students are strongly encouraged to fulfill their once-per -week tutoring requirements through the SLC; however, credit will be given to students who wish to attend other tutoring labs on campus. (Proof of attendance must be submitted.)

  • All First-year Freshmen and Students in Developmental / Remedial Courses: First-year freshmen, or students in a developmental/remedial course (Math/English), are required to attend tutoring for at least one hour each week. The first year of college can be very challenging. This requirement is to ensure that freshmen achieve academic success.
  • Current Probation & Academic Warning Students: Students on academic warning or probation are required to attend tutoring one hour each week.  Students must also make an appointment with their SEEK counselor to make a “Success Plan of Action.”
  • Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors: Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors are encouraged to bring their papers and Math/Science questions. These students should visit the SEEK Learning Center so they can reach their full academic potential. In addition, if a professor recommends that a student attend tutoring, we strongly encourage contacting the Center.
