Academic Learning Center Home

The Academic Learning Center teaches study and reading techniques to St. Cloud State students. We also train students who want to help others succeed at learning.

We design programs and materials to help students be more efficient learners.

We provide help through several methods:

  • COLL 110 Reading and Study Strategies and COLL 120 Power Reading help you get on track quickly.
  • We offer subject tutoring in general education courses in 15+ subject areas.
  • One-on-one study strategy appointments. We can help with general study strategies like note-taking, retention and time management that will improve your college learning.
  • Tutor training. We provide training for peer tutors across campus.
  • We help faculty incorporate study strategies into their classes.
