Peer Tutoring Program
We all have challenging classes, and most of us have a class or two with which we could use some extra help. The Peer Tutoring Program helps organize peer-tutored study groups of five or fewer students who meet every week for one hour. These groups are available for GC courses only. Your professor can help facilitate forming these study groups in your class. Each semester, we have groups meeting for various subjects such as Spanish, pathophysiology, chemistry, computer programming, economics, statistics, accounting and biology.
If you would like a tutor, please contact: Judy Weaver, ASC director, or fill out the request a tutor form.

Services for students with disabilities
To be eligible to receive accommodations, a student must provide an educational evaluation completed by a licensed professional, usually within the last three years. This documentation will be kept on file in the Academic Success Center office. The ASC provides a variety of services to students with documented learning disabilities.
