The ASC, located on all campuses, combines personal attention with computer-assisted instruction in an environment where students, faculty, and staff collaborate to ensure student success. The following educational support programs are available for students:
Content-Specific Tutoring – ASC Learning Specialists and peer tutors provide help on a question and answer basis for: assignment decoding and content challenges; study skills and exam reviews; computer and technology assistance; citation formatting; and help facilitating student/faculty communication. No appointment is necessary.
Virtual Tutoring – Students who are unable to make to an ASC location are able to consult one-on-one with a Learning Specialist or peer tutor using web-conferencing software.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) – SI is an internationally recognized academic support program offering regularly scheduled study sessions for traditionally difficult courses. These sessions are run by a Faculty or Peer SI Leader.
Gear-Up Workshops: These workshops are designed to get students "geared-up" for upcoming course work and are scheduled in the weeks before the semester begins. Some of the workshops in this series include Math-Up (Elementary, Intermediate, and College Algebra, and Survey of Mathematics), Word-Up (College Composition), and Tech-Up (a variety of digital resources).
Exam and Subject-Area Review Sessions: Learning Specialists organize review sessions during exam time based on student and instructor requests.
