University Learning Center

Student Frequently Asked Questions


  1. Where are the Learning Centers located?

    The University Learning Centers are housed on both campuses. At the Modesto A. Maidique Campus (MMC), the University Learning Center can be found on the first floor of the Library (GL-120). At the Biscayne Bay Campus (BBC), the ULC is located on the first floor of the Academic One building (AC1-160)- next door to the Office of Admissions.

  2. Is the ULC primarily used by students who are doing poorly in class?

    Absolutely not. In fact, you may be surprised to learn that many of the students who use the University Learning Center have very good GPAs and are simply interested in sharpening their skills.

  3. Do I have to be referred to the ULC by a professor or advisor?

    No, all students are welcomed with or without referrals.

  4. Do you offer tutoring in other areas in addition to Writing, Reading, and Mathematics?

    Yes, the Reading Lab offers an extensive tutoring program to improve study skills. In fact, many juniors and seniors - and even some graduate students - have signed up for our study skills programs. Our Math lab offers tutoring in all core statistics courses. Also, don't forget that we can refer you to other campus units which may be able to assist you in other areas.

  5. My professor told me to attend the ULC if I wanted to earn some extra credit points. What can I do at the ULC to earn extra credit?

    Your professor must tell you exactly what he or she expects you to accomplish at the ULC in order to earn extra credit. In any case, our policy requires that a tutor reviews your work and signs a session form.

  6. Do you have evening or weekend hours?

    The ULC has flexible office hours to meet the needs of students just like you. The ULC is open Monday - Friday and on evenings.

  7. How can I make my appointment?

    You can make your appointment in person or by calling the ULC at either campus. MMC 305 348-2180 or BBC 305 919-5927

  8. What if I can't make it to my appointment?

    The ULC policy is that you must call and cancel your appointment 24 hours in advance whenever possible. If you fail to cancel your appointments repeatedly, you risk losing Center privileges. Remember, canceling your appointment in advance ensures that we can accommodate other students.
