Academic Success Center - Grand Island

Services available at the Grand Island campus
  • Grand Island ASC Tutoring

    The Academic Success Center (ASC) provides many services for students including on-campus tutoring, online tutoring, computer lab and computer assistance, and the academic skill builder workshop. Click the tabs below to learn more about each service.

  • Tutoring is a free service to our students. Our tutors have knowledge in specific subjects and will act as a learning resource for you. They will help you review and study what you've learned in class. One-to-one and group tutoring is available in selected subjects.

    We are also seeking students who would like to become tutors. If you have an above average grade in a specific course and would like to help others learn, then you may qualify. Our tutors are paid and set their own hours with individual students or study groups.

    Distance Tutoring

    Tutoring and Writing Coach assistance are available through distance tutoring for online students or students unable to travel to a campus. These services are available every term – spring, summer, and fall. Students and tutors will work together to determine the best way to conduct these tutoring services, whether it be through email and/or telephone correspondence, or WebEx meetings. Please contact any Academic Success Center to inquire about distance tutoring.

    What is the Writing Center? 

    The Writing Center offers free, one-on-one assistance to Central Community College students as they strive to improve their writing skills. We provide CCC student writers with a welcoming, inviting, collaborative and supportive atmosphere in which they can develop their skills and make informed decisions about their writing. We promote writing excellence and success of students in both their academic and future careers. The Writing Center also offers free, one-on-one collaboration to Central Community College faculty and staff as they create assignments for their courses, write for publication, update their resumes and CVs, etc.

    How do I use the Writing Center?

    Students are encouraged to schedule appointments ahead of time. We accept drop-ins, but a Writing Coach might not be immediately available. Please contact the Academic Success Center Coordinator for more information or for assistance in scheduling an appointment.

    The Grand Island ASC serves as the campus testing center. Testing is available on a walk-in basis or in a private room by appointment. Accommodation testing is available on recommendation of Disability Services. Photo ID is required at testing.

    Pearson Vue testing is available at the Grand Island ASC on Wednesdays (5:00 – 9:00) and Saturdays (9:00 – 1:00). Clients include GED, NREMT, American College, Cisco, CompTIA, and many other IT-based organizations. All Pearson Vue testing is computer-based.

    Registration for Pearson Vue testing must be completed through www.ged.com  or www.pearsonvue.com

    Supplemental Instruction is offered in courses that are historically difficult for students. In this effort, a former student, who excelled in the area, attends the class and then offers additional teaching sessions to students. These sessions are held at times that accommodate student schedules like weekends, evenings, etc. Currently, SI sessions are offered for students enrolled in Anatomy and Physiology I, College Algebra, Math Essentials, and Med.-Surg. I and II.
