Learning Success Center

About Us

The Learning Success Center (LSC) is designed to promote access to computer technology, online resources and instructional programs to both college students and community residents in support of achievement of their academic career or life goals.   From students needing to improve study habits, to individuals identifying learning strengths and weaknesses, to striving to create a sensitive environment that is conducive to learning by providing multifaceted academic, and professional support to students,   staff, and faculty of Jefferson State Community College. Computer-assisted instruction, tutorial sessions and seminars are just a few of the tools used for educational development. Individual programs can be designed to address academic concerns for a unique learning experience.
