  • Supplemental math instruction

Facts Don't Lie...

Not only is hard work and skill necessary to succeed in college, but also a sense of direction. At times you will need help along the way to satisfy the demands of college and navigate through the maze of courses associated with your degree plan. This is why qualified Madisonville Community College students have an opportunity to be a part of Student Support Services.

Nationwide studies have shown that students who participate in Student Support Services are more likely to remain in college, have a higher GPA, and achieve their academic goals than those who are not involved with our program.

We hope you will stop by to visit us because "When you succeed we succeed!"
