Center for Academic Program Support (CAPS)
In keeping with the recommendations of the CDC and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, HCC is limiting campus foot traffic in order to maximize social distancing and keep our staff and students healthy.
We have moved our Student Support Services to phone, email, and other remote interactive options, including Zoom and Google Hangouts. Please feel free to contact us for assistance at 413.552.2584 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Center for Academic Program Support (CAPS) provides free assistance to all HCC students through tutoring, writing, ESL, and math centers; study groups and ongoing study skills workshops; and programs such as our free Math Mini Prep. Additionally, CAPS provides specialized academic programs such as supplemental instruction, learning coaches, and mentoring.
CAPS promotes a positive, collaborative, and empowering learning environment where all students can enhance their academic skills and abilities, and achieve success. We are committed to honoring all people, as well as developing and maintaining relationships throughout our campus and the surrounding community. Both innovative and traditional styles of teaching and learning are applied across the curriculum. Our services and support are provided to all in a timely, respectful, and consistent manner.
The math center provides handouts, videos, books, and software dealing with algebra, basic math, calculus, and other topics.
