Chemistry Learning Center Overview

History and Purpose

The Chemistry Learning Center (CLC) was established as a resource for all Michigan Tech students enrolled in first-year and organic chemistry courses. The CLC's goals are to assist students in making the transition from high school to college-level expectations, gaining self-confidence, and mastering chemistry concepts.

Students who participate in the CLC usually earn one-half to one full letter grade higher than students who don't. Whether you struggle with chemistry or just need help with a question or two, you are invited to visit us.

There is no cost for any of the services provided - so we encourage you to take advantage of them.

CH0100 - Chemistry Coaching

CH0100 is a 0-credit audit course that students can take during each semester they are enrolled in a first-year chemistry class. A student who is enrolled in CH0100 can sign up for either of the following options during the first week of classes:

Appointments and team meetings begin in the second week of classes. The grade in CH0100 is based on attendance (satisfactory/unsatisfactory). Our expectation is that you will attend all of your sessions—that is the "secret" behind the effectiveness of CH0100. However, you may miss one time during the semester and still receive a satisfactory grade (three absences are allowed if your group meets three times a week).

Enrolling in CH0100 is the most effective way to improve your grade in chemistry and your understanding of the material. What are you waiting for? Sign up today!
