Center for Academic Program Support (CAPS)
An empowering learning environment.
The Center for Academic Program Support (CAPS) is a hub of tutoring centers and academic support programs dedicated to student success. We offer one-on-one tutoring, study groups, learning coaches, and supplemental instruction through the Tutoring Center, Math Center, Writing Center, and English as a Second Language (ESL) Center.
Additionally, we assist students with math placement test preparation, writing college transfer essays, and writing scholarship essays throughout the year.
CAPS Tutoring: Available on campus and online, Monday – Friday, along with some Saturday tutoring. View tutor schedules on Navigate, Canvas, or Moodle.
If a tutor is not available for your course or you can only meet outside of tutoring hours, tutoring is available here with limited availability.
