Learner's Assistance Centre

What is the Learners' Assistance Centre (LAC)?

The LAC's friendly staff offers free and confidential learning assistance to students enrolled in college/university courses. To access services, students can walk-in, be referred, make an appointment, or attend a workshop.
Getting assistance when you need it is a terrific way to make your studying at UCN successful. Extra help can make your time at UCN rewarding and fun; it will also decrease your stress. The LAC is a contact point for finding resources, getting help with unanswered questions, or receiving advice on:
  • learning styles and study strategies
  • research
  • writing (including outlines, rough drafts and editing)
  • exploring student success strategies (skills for reading and understanding content, note taking, time management, preparing for and writing tests/exams, memory strategies)
  • preparing for oral presentations
  • basic math
  • succeeding with a disability
  • job search
  • and more...
Services also include computers for student use, resource books available (for loan ), basic Math and English reviews, test/exam supervision, handouts on math, writing, and study skills. The LAC staff provides small group and individualized tutoring along with workshops on specific topics.
