Academic Support Center / Tutoring Center

The Academic Support Center (ASC) is the principal academic support service at Mission College. We provide students tutoring services for many courses taught campus-wide. The center’s facilities enable students to study collaboratively as well as individually. We strive to offer quality services in a variety of formats to respond to individual student needs. Our goal is to create an open atmosphere of learning to help students become independent and active learners.

We offer free one-on-one and group tutoring in a wide range of disciplines. We also help with study strategies. The tutoring schedule may change each semester based on tutor availability and funding.

In addition, ASC provides peer-embedded support for a wide variety of courses in basic skills, transfer, STEM, and courses that lead to degrees or certificates.

Our faculty, staff, and tutors promote active learning through small group workshops, individual and group tutoring, personalized assessment, and interactive multimedia.
