The Academic Support Center consists of two separate programs: The Doane Learning Center (DLC) and Doane Student Support Services (DSS). Excluding DLC 090 /DSS 090 , up to nine DLC/DSS credits may be counted toward graduation.

Any student may enroll in the DLC program offerings. The DSS program is funded by the federal government, so participants must meet federal eligibility guidelines. Eligibility is verified by the Director of Student Support Services each fall. Only eligible students may enroll in DSS classes. Eligible students receive program bulletins throughout the year.

In addition to credit courses, the Academic Support Center provides peer tutoring, academic counseling, writing assistance, and a variety of workshops. Students eligible for Student Support Services may also check out computer software and attend cultural events in Lincoln (tickets and transportation provided at no cost).
