Student Success Center


The Student Success Center provides services that assist students to succeed academically and houses two grant programs: Adult Basic Education/GED and Title IV Student Support Services. The SSC is also the site of placement testing, that is required before enrolling in particular courses, and developmental courses.

In addition, a computer lab is open for class and student use. Please use the "Location & Hours" link on the left to see the hours that the lab and SSC are available.

For information about Adult Education courses or GED please contact Karen Barger by email at karenb@labette.edu or by phone at (620) 820-1182.
