The Integrated Academic Support (IAS) program is designed to deliver support services within the structure of a course to increase student utilization of these services and, ultimately, impact student success.

We are able to provide a full range of academic support services in-person, as well as online synchronous and asynchronous formats. Customizable services include:

Dual credit instructors are invited to participate in online and in-person FRC events. Instructors may also request professional development to address specific areas of interest or need.
The FRC also maintains the Center for Online Professional Excellence (COPE) guide to support faculty teaching in any modality that includes an online component. The guide includes an Online Teaching 101 section to help faculty teaching online for the first time, as well as various resources, including "How-to's", workshop videos, and teaching tools.
The LSC-Montgomery Dual Credit Summit is held every year in October on the LSC-Montgomery campus. The event brings together dual credit instructors from all LSC-Montgomery partner high schools, department chairs, faculty, and academic support staff. It is an opportunity for professional development and fellowship, as well as a chance to learn more about the resources and services available to you and your dual credit students.
Dual credit instructors are encouraged to contact their department chair for instructional support, including teaching and learning support, as well as student issues. A list of current instructional contacts is available below.
In addition to the resources available at your high school, dual credit students have access to the academic resources and research assistants available at the LSC-Montgomery Library. These resources are summarized for students on the Dual Credit Student Services guide. The library is located in the STAR Center (Building F, 1st Floor); however, many of the resources and services are also available online and can be accessed off-campus from your high school, home, or other favorite place to study.
Dual credit students have access to both physical and electronic (online) resources available through LSC-Montgomery Library. Students access these resources with a LSCS library barcode. The library barcode is printed on the back of the LSC Student ID card, but students who are not able to visit campus to get a physical ID card can request their barcode number via email.
