Welcome to the LRC!


The Learning Resources Center (LRC)
is UMBC’s comprehensive undergraduate academic support program designed to help students reach their academic goals and become independent, lifelong learners. The LRC collaborates with students, faculty, staff, and the community to conduct programs that maximize learning success at an honors university.


The LRC is an integral part of the UMBC experience. We provide the tools for our undergraduate tutors, peer mentors, writing tutors, supplemental instruction leaders, and support staff to have the opportunity to reach their goals. We are known as a department that combines traditional, creative, and civic engagement opportunities for students as we support and encourage their independent, lifelong learning.


The LRC's services are free of charge and open to all enrolled students. Our programs and activities include the following:

  • The Placement Testing Program to assess the ability of entering freshmen and some transfer students for appropriate placement into UMBC mathematics and English courses; college reading ability is tested as well for advisement purposes
  • LRC 101A a course in which students develop strategies for success in college and in life
