Learning Support Services Credit Courses

You need a specific set of skills to succeed in a college class. Learning support courses teach those skills, giving students the tools they need to succeed at the next level. Learning support courses are one way that Schoolcraft opens the door to a college education. First we assess your readiness for college-level work. Then we use that assessment to direct you to the courses that are most likely to improve your ability to succeed. In some cases this means directing the student to a Learning Support course. In other cases it means directing students to a Foundation course.

Either way, the focus is on meeting you where you are and helping you take that next step toward where you want to be. All courses are not offered each semester. Please work with an academic advisor or counselor to develop a schedule that will work for you.
