Directed Study and
Student Success Courses
Students who are having difficulty scheduling their
courses, or those who need an extra credit or two may benefit from a
Directed Study or Student Development course.
courses allow students to pursue a special interest in an area not
covered by a regularly offered course. They are also used by
students who are not able to attend a regularly scheduled course.
The instructor may work out the details for a student to earn credit
for a directed study. Students are required to attach a syllabus of
the course with the application form (available on the Registrar’s
website). Directed studies are also available through Student
Services. Contact that office (2218) for more information.
courses are usually 1-credit courses that help students develop the
skills needed to succeed at LCSC. Choose from:
SD 100 – Introduction to College Studies
SD 107 – Student Orientation (1-day only, prior
to semester start date)
SD 108 – Warrior Entertainment Board (great for
connecting students to the campus community)
SD 120 – Career Exploration

throughout the semester. If a student must drop or withdraw from a
class, they do have the option of adding a course with an
alternative or “late start” date. Some of the consistently offered
alternative start courses are:
These courses have often proved to be “rescue”
courses, allowing students to remain enrolled full time.
