Refer Your Students ~ Free SCC Tutoring Service, SCC Writing Lab & Online Writing Lab (OWL)
All SCC students are eligible for free tutoring to assist them with their coursework, and we have several tutoring and Academic Computing facilities on campus. A faculty referral is part of the documentation required by Title 5 so that the college can be reimbursed for the tutoring services. One way that students obtain your referral is by asking you to sign the tutoring application. Another convenient way to make the referral is via the intranet. Here's how:
Sign into your Intranet account at http://inside.losrios.edu.
Select “Online Grade Reporting & Class Roster” which will take you to the “List of Classes” page.
Below the list of classes is the Refer Students to Tutoring and Academic Computing button.
Select the “Refer Students” button, by doing so you will refer all the students in all your classes for tutoring at all the tutoring labs on campus with one button selection.
Once you have clicked on the “Refer Students” button, a page will appear showing your class list and a statement that you have referred your students. This page will appear only once! So, if you would like a copy please print it when you first see it.
After you make the referral, the referring button disappears, and the tutoring coordinators receive a list of all the referrals.
When a student comes in for tutoring we will check the list to see if they have been referred and then direct them to a tutor.
If you have any questions about making referrals, please contact Ginnie Gessford, Coordinator Learning Skills and Tutoring Program, 558-2600.

And if that weren't enough, SCC also has a new Online Writing Lab (OWL) set up by SCC English instructor Tom Miner with assistance from Melissa Green, Jory Hadsell, and Alex Adan. The Online Writing Lab aims to empower students, faculty, and staff to become better writers, critical thinkers, and communicators. Send your students to OWL to find answers to writing and grammar questions, get feedback on writing for class assignments or for the workplace, and consult Internet resources for help with writing and conducting research. The OWL will continue to add resources for writers and collaborate with departments across campus. Send your suggestions to Tom Miner (558-2127).
