The Academic Success Center consists of two separate programs–The Doane Learning Center (DLC) and Doane Student Support Services (DSS)–to provide instruction in college reading efficiency and writing. A student may register for any DLC course at the beginning of a term or any time prior to the first day of each session. Any student may enroll in the DLC program offerings. Excluding DLC 090/DSS 090, up to nine DLC/DSS credits may be counted toward graduation. Students receive letter grades in these courses.
In addition to credit courses, the Academic Success 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).
The DSS program provides instruction in college-level study skills, writing, and basic computational mathematics. Students must be eligible for the Student Support Services program to enroll in these courses. Eligible students may register for any DSS course at the beginning of a term or any time prior to the first day of each session. Students receive letter grades in these courses.
NOTE: All students must demonstrate adequate basic computational skills before enrolling in any mathematics course numbered 100 or above. This requirement is met in one of the following ways:
By attaining an Enhanced ACT math score of 19 or higher
By attaining an SAT math score of 530 or higher
By passing Doane’s Computational Skills Test
By completing DSS 090 with a grade of C- or higher
By transferring credits that are equivalent to DLC 090/DSS 090 or college-level mathematics
