Bring your class to the Reading Lab!

Faculty may schedule times to bring their classes to the Reading Lab by completing a Class Visit Request form. Email or come to D202 to get a form.


A limited number of referrals are available for BaTS, ELI, and English students, as well as students from outside of the Arts & Humanities Division each quarter. These students can access tools and programs as guests. BC faculty and advisors can complete a Referral Form. Students or instructors can pick up the referral form in D202.


We offer workshops throughout the quarter that focus on reading strategies, writing techniques, and study skills. All are welcome to attend!
