To make an appointment with a counselor, please visit the Curry First Stop, Gold Beach Center, or the Student Services Coordinator. See more information on counseling.

Tools at the Career Center can help you make key decisions whether you’re deciding on a degree, looking for an internship, or preparing for job search. Spend some time exploring, learning about yourself and all the great resources at your fingertips!

Math and Writing Labs

Our Math Lab offers individualized instruction and assistance for students registered in mathematics classes at any proficiency level, from Arithmetic to Calculus. It enables students to learn/study at their own level and pace.

SWOCC offers a Writing Lab at the Curry Campus for students working on term papers in any class. Tutors don’t edit students’ papers, of course, but they do teach students to edit themselves, to develop their ideas, and to understand and address the requirements of the assignment.

For writing lab hours in Brookings, please email Marta Wozniak at Drop-in lab hours vary from term to term depending on Marta’s teaching schedule. Fall 2014 writing lab is scheduled on Fridays from 10 am to 12 noon.

Marta Wozniak’s writing lab is open to ALL Curry students. You don’t necessarily need to be registered in Marta’s classes. If you have a writing question and/or need advice on the draft of a paper written for any class, feel free to stop by during lab hours. Marta is always happy to help.
