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: for writing assignments for any course, a tutor will review your submission and email you feedback.
