Learning Commons

Learning Commons Logo

The Learning Commons is a supplemental support facility where any CCAC student is welcome to come in to study, to work on a paper or project, or to meet with a teacher or peer.

  • It is a walk-in facility, no appointments necessary.
  • This is especially helpful for students needing help with homework for their next class session.
  • The Learning Commons is for all students, all skill levels.
  • All students needing assistance with reading and writing assignments in any course—nursing, psychology, criminal justice, etc., -- are welcome at the Learning Commons.
  • Students with good skills who want to clarify a point, and students who need to improve skills or brush up on forgotten skills.
