IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING STUDENT SUCCESS CENTER SERVICES: The campus is closed until further notice, tutoring services will only be available virtually.

During the campus closure, we have online tutoring available for you to use via Canvas.  If you have not already added TU301, you will need to do so to access the online tutoring. Here are the instructions on enrolling; it’s free; zero units. The day after you enroll, you will see “TU301” listed under your courses in Canvas.  Click on it and then you will be redirected to our online tutoring, Smarthinking, which you can access 24/7, from anywhere.  You receive 16 hours per semester of free online tutoring.

Our tutoring services are free and available to all students enrolled in many of courses offered on campus. Computer lab access is available to those students enrolled in courses that require specialized software that is loaded on the computers in the Student Success Center. We also have a 3D printer, scanners, and regular print station available for student use. Tutoring is available year-round, during fall, spring and summer sessions. We have two conference rooms which are reserved for our tutors only; if students need a study room, they can reserve one at the Library through its webpage here.

Students are allowed one hour of tutoring per subject per week, for up to three courses. In addition, students can access free online tutoring ~24-7. Students enrolled in DSPS, EOPS, re-entry program, Guardian Scholars, or who are military veterans qualify for additional tutoring hours, depending on tutor availability.
