Student Resources & Opportunities

Student Resourses:

Facilitated Study Groups (FSGs)
FSG's are small study groups for STEM courses. These study groups are essential components of the UMLSAMP and Bridges projects and are led by RCC professors or other professionals in the subject area. FSG's are held for the following courses at RCC:

  1. Microbiology
  2. Biology
  3. Chemistry
  4. College-Level Mathematics

For more information about FSG's, please contact:
STEM Opportunities at STEMOpportunities@rcc.mass.edu

Students who need tutorial services in other subject areas are encouraged to contact The Learning Center in Room 3-207.

Math Clinic

The Math Clinic at Roxbury Community College is committed to drop-in accessibility as it supports students to succeed in all levels of mathematics by providing a safe environment to ask questions, study for tests, and complete homework assignments. Students who struggle with math are equally welcome as those for whom math is a major concentration. We are located in room 206 of the Academic Building.

For more information, see our moodle page:
