Academic Support Centers (ASC) provide a variety of instructional support programs and services to help you make satisfactory academic progress. The ASCs combine personal attention with computer-assisted instruction in an environment where students, faculty and staff collaborate to ensure student success. ASC attendance is required if you are enrolled in developmental math, reading or writing courses. The following educational support programs are available for your use:
Tutoring and Learning Sessions – Tutors assist students enrolled in most courses on a walk-in basis. Additionally, students can also attend scheduled Learning Sessions on selected courses in Math and Science.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) – SI is an internationally recognized academic support program offering regularly scheduled study sessions for traditionally difficult courses. Students who have previously taken the course and demonstrated academic competency in the subject area lead study sessions.
Workshops – Specialized learning and study strategy sessions are designed to help you succeed. Workshops are offered in basic computer skills, navigating online courses, creating PowerPoint projects, testing strategies, stress management and note taking.
