Academic Support Center
The mission of the Academic Support Center (ASC) is to provide a full service tutoring experience that cultivates student success. By fostering a supportive environment, the ASC strives to inspire students at every level of preparedness to advance, to excel, and to reach their fullest potential.
The ASC is comprised of a collaborative group of dedicated educators who strive to enhance the learning experience, and academic and professional achievement of HCC students through comprehensive services, which include:
- Center for Academic Progress (CAP)
Provides tutoring and support for English and math intensive classes and refresher programs.
- STEAM Center of Excellence
Provides tutoring for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math including most math and science courses as well as business, accounting, ESL, and computer science.
- Writing Center (WC)
Provides tutoring for writing and reading in all courses except intensive English.
Tutoring is available for free for most courses for enrolled students. We offer three options:
- On campus: meet with a tutor in the ASC for a traditional, in-person session
- Online: meet with a tutor online; you and your tutor can use video, audio, and text chat as well as share screens.
- Etutoring: submit an assignment for tutoring; a tutor will review your submission and email you feedback
How to Get Tutoring
Tutoring is available on campus and online. You can meet with a tutor in-person, by video chat online, or by etutoring. You can make appointments at Housatonic.accudemia.net.
