The Learning Commons
In keeping with DCCC’s mission statement, the Learning Commons serves as an innovative learning resource, providing professional academic assistance that promotes retention and success by challenging and empowering students to maximize their academic potential.
The Learning Commons is located on the first floor of the Grady E. Love Learning Resources Center on the Davidson Campus. The center provides free tutoring for enrolled students in various subjects. In addition to the tutoring services, the Learning Commons provides a variety of academic support workshops.
Students may request tutoring any time during the semester by completing a Request for Tutoring Form (found on the College’s Website or at the Learning Commons welcome desk) and returning the completed form with instructor signature to the Learning Commons. Qualified professional and peer tutors are employed by the College to share their learning strategies and problem-solving skills with any student having difficulty in a subject.
Persons interested in being a peer tutor should complete an online application under the employment section of the College’s website. The application can be found under the heading “Student Jobs.” To be eligible, a student must have completed the course for which he/she will be tutoring with a grade of B or higher or, if currently enrolled, be earning a B or higher and have a favorable recommendation from the instructor of the course. Tutors are paid hourly and compensated monthly.
The Learning Commons also houses the Academic Testing Center, high school equivalency testing, study rooms, and a reading lounge. The Academic Testing Center provides placement testing. Students needing to take the College’s placement test can visit the College’s website to make an appointment online.
The Academic Testing Center also provides testing services for students who need to take their tests outside of the classroom. Students needing to test in the center must make initial arrangements through his/her instructor(s). Students who need to take a course test in the center are required to make testing appointments at least 24 hours in advance in order to guarantee a seat in a designated testing space. Appointments can be made by calling 336.249.8186, ext. 6787 or coming by the Learning Commons welcome desk. Student testing guidelines may be found on the College’s website.
