Assessments and learning assistance 

Coast Mountain College provides a number of ways to access support to ensure a successful and rewarding educational experience.

Learning Assistance Specialists assess learning difficulties and provide helpful strategies to lessen effects that act as a barrier to success. Free student success workshops are conducted at most campuses throughout the year.

Students experiencing learning difficulties, for any reason, are encouraged to contact a Learning Assistance Specialist or any member of the Student Services team. To book an assessment, contact a Learning Assistance Specialist at a campus near you.
