Who can come to the Student Learning Center for help?
The SLC is free and available to ALL Ringling students.
Are students required to come?
No one is required to come to the SLC. It is totally up to the student.
How long are appointments?
Appointments with Learning Specialists are 1 hour and appointments with Student Consultants are 30 minutes.
How often should a student come to the SLC?
Students come when they need help. Some students come once a week, but others only come once or twice before a big exam.
Do you offer tutoring for studio classes?
Tutoring for studio classes is handled through the departments, so students should contact instructors if they need help outside the classroom.
What happens during an appointment?
One thing that does not happen - we do not do the work for you.
We do make the appointment fit you and your learning style.
Some students may need help editing a paper while others may need help memorizing 50 works of art.
Will you communicate with my instructors for me?
No, but we will help you write an email or practice a conversation with them.
What if the Time Management plan we create does not work?
Come back to see a Learning Specialist and work together to modify the plan.
Can you help with anxiety during presentations or critique?
We cannot cure anxiety, but we can teach you techniques to deal with it while making a presentation.
Will you talk to my parents and explain how difficult the work is at Ringling?
No, but we will help you role play a conversation with them.
