Welcome to the University of Cincinnati's Learning Assistance Center (LAC). The LAC is a learning resource for UC students, parents, faculty, and staff. We offer a wide variety of services to assist all students in achieving academic success at the university, including individual consultations and academic resources. Since the LAC's inception at UC, we have provided students with comprehensive and diverse programs for academic support, and we work hard to complement the courses taught at the university. Any student enrolled at the University of Cincinnati or its branches may use the LAC, and I invite all UC students to stop by, meet our staff, and make an appointment with our outstanding tutors, SI Leaders, and coaches.
