What do I need to do to complete Learning Support?

Here are five simple steps!

1. Attendance is your key to success. Expect to come to class twice a week and work for 4-5 hours outside of class to pass.
2. Work ahead early and don't get behind. Once you have finished all your work, you can stop attending!
3. Get your Learning Support done early so you can move on to your college classes.  You can finish it all your first semester. Don't delay!
4. Take advantage of our tutors in the Learning Center. If you work with us twice a week, you'll be much more likely to get an A!
5. You cannot drop a Learning Support class without approval. Do not plan on dropping if you fall behind.


MATH 0891, 0892 & 1000 Students (including Web):

Need to take a test? 

Go to the MLS - Open Testing Schedule page and get the details on days, times and locations for testing.  Make sure that you have your Student Organizer completed and that you have a photo ID. 

NOTE: The exams are ONLY available at the locations listed. They are NOT available at any of the other campuses nor through the Testing Center.


RODP Students:  Students enrolled in a RODP version of Math Learning Support must go to a Testing Center for a post-test.




Taking the diagnostic exams for either Math, Reading or Writing Learning Support will allow a student the opportunity to test out of part or all of their Learning Support classes.  You must be registered in a Learning Support class to be able to take the diagnostic exam.  The diagnostic is NOT available to students registered in a RODP course.  The diagnostic exam is designed to assess a student’s abilities in the material that is covered within each course.  For details on how to test out of a class simply click on one of the links below.

For the 2013-14 academic year, the diagnostic exams can only be taken early in a Learning Support Lab at either the Roane Co. (main) Campus in Harriman or the Oak Ridge Branch Campus during specific times. Other campus locations may become available. Be sure to check back often.


Math Learning Support (MATH 0891/2) - Diagnostics (testing is available in Roane Co. & Oak Ridge)

Writing Learning Support (ENGL 0891/2) - Diagnostics (testing as ended for spring semester)

No course credit is given for testing out of any portion of MLS or WLS.


Learning Support Labs

Beginning in the Fall semester of 2012, Learning Support will have dedicated labs.  The Roane Co. (main) Campus, on the second floor of the library (L-212), and the Oak Ridge Branch Campus (F-101 & F-103) both consist of MLS Lab and RLS/WLS Lab spaces.  These are the locations where students enrolled in the lab courses of ENGL, MATH or READ 0891/0892 will hold their classes.  Web students enrolled in either MATH 0891, 0892 or 1000 are required to take their exams at one of the MLS Labs during the times listed on the MLS - Open Testing Schedule webpage.  Exams cannot be taken at any of the Testing Centers.

Each lab is comprised of multiple desktop workstations.  Faculty, staff and tutors are available to assist the students during normal hours. For answers to any questions or concerns feel free to contact the Learning Support Lab at
