The Learning and Academic Resource Center (LARC) is located on the first floor of the University Library in the Schulz Information Center. LARC houses several academic support services: the Writing Center, the Tutorial Program, and Supplemental Instruction in one convenient and inviting space for students, faculty, and staff.

Due to the current Sonoma County "shelter-in-place" order and preventation measures related to coronavirus, the LARC will move all tutoring (both writing and subject-specific) to online. Additionally, Supplemental Instruction sessions and Learning Communities will also move to an online modality. ONLINE SERVICES WILL BEGIN ON March 30th.

The Writing Center helps students, faculty, and staff with developing their writing skills and producing documents. Writing Center staff also assists faculty with improving their writing for instruction, supports WIC (Writing Intensive Course) curriculum, and promotes writing across the curriculum. The Tutorial Program offer free peer tutoring in over 50 courses each semester and provides weekly drop-in math tutoring. Students can easily schedule tutoring appointments online for both the Tutorial Program and the Writing Center by clicking the link above and registering for an account . The Supplemental Instruction Program (SI) is a peer-led academic assistance program that helps students succeed in specific course sections. Study sessions are led by trained SI Leaders who have mastered the course content. Students can voluntarily attend these SI sessions to increase their understanding of topics and materials from the courses, and improve their grade!
