      • The Academic Support Services Centers offer free one-on-one tutoring, group tutoring, and workshops that provide students with the option to either walk-in or create an appointment ahead of time using WCOnline. WCOnline is accessible to students at their convenience on their phone, tablet, or personal computer. We also offer and encourage students to take advantage of creating recurring weekly appointments to maintain consistent tutoring sessions. All four centers on both campuses are open Monday through Friday, 10:00 am - 7:00 pm and Saturday, 10:00 am - 3:00 pm (Academic Foundations Math Center is closed on Saturdays).

      • Individualized Tutoring for Students with Learning Differences

      • In-Class Tutoring Program

Based on the material that is covered in class and suggestions from the faculty, SI Leaders hold sessions to review the material so students can gain a deeper understanding of course content.
