Writing, Math, and Computer Science Referral System

Instructors can refer students early in the semester for tutoring and/or skills building across all disciplines in the areas of reading comprehension, writing skills, math skills, and computer technology skills to supplement classroom instruction. Other academic skills for which additional support may be needed include the ability to follow directions, understand assignments, analyze test questions, manage time, organization skills, and format in MLA or APA conventions.  


 

A classroom instructor should log into the Time Keep system to refer students to the ASC.  

Instructions on how to refer students to the ASC are located in the Moodle Instructors Resources course in the Academic Support Center section. 


 

The instructor is welcome to provide study materials or the ASC mentors will provide them.
