Academic Assistance for Pellissippi State Students
Welcome to the Academic Support Center (ASC) at PSCC!
The ASC at each PSCC campus offers academic support free of charge.
Information on Hours of Operation for all campuses are under the Contact Us & Hours of Operation tab to the left.
Tutoring for all Pellissippi State students is offered in a variety of subjects from History to Computer Science. This is a service that is free of charge with highly qualified tutors. No appointments are required, we offer walk-in tutoring where tutors work with students on a first come, first serve basis. To see the schedules and the subjects offered at each campus, click on the link to the left under Tutor Schedules.
Located on all five campuses are Math Labs that offer walk-in tutoring and computer access for homework or online math lab work. Tutors for all levels of math offered at PSCC are available to assist students with questions. Calculators may, also, be checked out with a PSCC ID.
The Writing Center
If you are looking for a place to write a paper under the guidance of a tutor, The Writing Center is the place for you. Tutors are available to review your work and offer tips on ways to improve it. Assistance for ESOL students is available, also.
(A Writing Center Service)
Online access to a Writing/English tutor is also available through Ascatutor@pstcc.edu
. With this service you simply email your paper along with your assignment sheet
to the email address as an attachment. This service is monitored Monday through Saturday 5:00pm to 9:00pm, and a tutor will get back to you with suggestions within 24 hours. This is a great option when you cannot come into the ASC.
Ascatutor is, also, available on weekends and holidays, including breaks like Spring and Fall Breaks.
