All other items must be placed within a locker that requires a quarter deposit. Personal Property cannot be left in the CLC. Appointments are necessary and must be made 24 hours in advance. All tests are filed under the instructor’s last name; therefore, students should know their instructor’s name prior to making an appointment. Following these procedures will help to provide an efficient and effective testing service. Enforcement of the Academic Dishonesty Policy will be observed by the CLC staff. Students who have been found responsible for violating the policy will not be permitted to test in the CLC for the remainder of the academic school year.

LASSI (Learning & Study Strategies Inventory)

The LASSI is an online, web-based assessment that can indicate your strengths and weaknesses in factors that significantly contribute to success in college. This reliable tool can diagnose skill levels in areas such as time management, anxiety, information processing, study aids, and test strategies.  You will receive immediate feedback and pre/post assessments can help you track your progress.

If you are interested in discovering how you learn and what academic strategies you can apply to improve your grades, speak to your tutor, counselor, Student Service Support Assistant (SSSA), or stop by the CLC (Founders Hall, room 565) to inquire about the LASSI and how you can use this simple and FREE tool to assist you in meeting your academic goals.
