The mission of the Academic Success Center (ASC) is to foster learning and help students achieve their highest academic potential. MCC students may use the services in the ASC to become successful, independent learners through collaboration with the rest of the college community.
Academic support services are provided free of charge to all MCC students. Individualized tutoring is available in writing, mathematics, business, arts and sciences, technical courses, and liberal arts and sciences on a first-come, first-serve drop-in basis. Additionally, tutoring in specialized subject areas is offered by appointment. Students should come to the ASC to ask for a Tutor Request Form for such subjects.
The ASC offers assistance in soft skills, such as: study skills, test taking, and time management, among others. The ASC runs discussion groups, review sessions, as well as workshops for students in specific courses or areas of study on an as-needed basis. The tutoring staff includes professional tutors and peer tutors chosen for their academic excellence in their specific academic areas.
The ASC is home to Math Boot Camp, the Peer Mentoring Program, and Student Success Coaching. Students are encouraged to visit the Academic Success Center during their first week of classes to become familiar with how the staff helps students succeed. Community members may access the Academic Success Center on a fee per service basis.
The Academic Success Center is located in the Learning Commons.
