The mission of the Academic Success Center at Olney Central College is to be of academic assistance to all students at OCC. The ASC works with students through tutoring and developmental courses. Students with specific learning needs are encouraged to visit the ASC as soon after registration as possible.
Placement testing as well as additional testing services through Pearson Vue, are also available. The ASC is located within the Anderson Library.
Registration for Adult Basic Education and GED classes is available at the Academic Success Center.
Data suggests more than 50 percent of students may need coursework in Mathematics and/or Reading and Writing to better equip them for college-level coursework. At OCC, our mission with developmental courses is clear. We seek to prepare students as completely and as quickly as the student is able. We have designed coursework and delivery methods to serve the students and their efforts best. We also work to connect students with tutors who provide strong support.
The Academic Success Center provides services to any student who has physical, emotional, and/or learning needs. If you have documented disabilities or need assistance in any way, please make an appointment with Dr. Linda Shidler at 618-395-7777, ext. 2264.
