A learning skills appointment at Red Deer College is a one-to-one or small group (up to 3 students) appointment with our Learning Skills Strategist. Referrals are not required.  

What to Expect:

  • The role of the Learning Skills Strategist is to provide professional learning strategy assistance and guidance, not to do the work for the student (e.g. the Learning Skills Strategist will not work on assignments or review test material).
  • Appointments booked online are scheduled for 45 minutes in the Red Deer College Library. 
  • Please be respectful and show up for your appointment on time.  Failure to show up to your appointment within 15 minutes of the appointment time will require you to reschedule.  The appointment will then be made available to another student.


  • In order to be respectful of the academic needs of the Red Deer College's student community, please be courteous and contact the Learning Skills Strategist as soon as possible if you are unable to attend an appointment.  
  • Please cancel at least two hours in advance by following the instructions in your appointment confirmation email, or by contacting the Learning Skills strategist directly by email ( or by phone at 403.342.3136.  This will allow the appointment time to become available for another student.
  • Failure to attend a scheduled appointment without proper cancellation notice will be recorded in your file as a "no show".  After two "no shows," it will be at the discretion of the Learning Skills Strategist to allow further appointments for the remainder of the semester.
