Academic Success Center
The Academic Success Center (ASC) is an important function of Academic Services. The mission of the ASC is to work in conjunction with a tutor and/or faculty member to provide positive academic support beyond basic classroom instruction for each student. The ASC services are offered free of charge for enrolled and potential students.
ASC hours of operation are:
Monday thru Thursday 9am - 6pm, Friday 9am - 2pm and Saturday 11am - 3pm.

The ASC offers a variety of learning options for all students. The center provides instruction in academic areas through the following methods:
- Individual tutoring in a variety of subjects by both peer tutors and faculty
- Group tutoring
- Computer assisted instruction (computer lab)
- Basic skills information
Tutors have been trained to assist in a way that will help students better understand the learning process.
The tutors in the ASC are full time students who work as part-time tutors. Each tutor must hold at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA and exhibit a strong understanding of course materials. Students receive assistance from staff members who have taken the courses they are tutoring. Some tutors have applicable work experience and hold college degrees from other institutions.
While free tutoring is available on a Walk-in basis, appointments are strongly encouraged. Hours and schedules vary each term, so please stop by to view posted schedules. If posted subjects or times do not meet your need or availability, you may complete a Tutor Request Form and efforts will be made to accommodate you. You may also email your request to Jane Carvajal, the ASC manager.
