The Learning Assistance Center (LAC) is NMSU Carlsbad’s tutoring center that offers all NMSU students free tutoring in all developmental- and college-level courses. In addition, the LAC offers assistance in test preparation, specifically for the ACCUPLACER placement exam and the HESI A2.
The mission of the LAC is to provide all students with student-centered and directed academic support services to help them become self-confident, independent learners who succeed in current and future college courses.
The LAC is staffed by both full- and part-time tutors in a variety of subjects. Students may walk-in or may schedule appointments with specific tutors. All individual and small-group tutoring sessions are fifty (50) minutes long. The LAC facilitates tutoring in formats such as individual sessions, small group sessions, review workshops, or in the classroom via the embedded tutoring program.
