Academic Support Services

Students may find that additional academic support will benefit them in achieving success in college. Receiving help with study skills or tutoring in a specific subject, additional time on tests or other accommodations for students with documented disabilities, or assistance with research and locating resources are some of the supports that CCC offers.

The Academic Support Services Include:

Accommodative Services

The role of this office is to assist all qualified students with disabilities in pursuing their educational goals. The Accommodative Services office attempts to coordinate students' needs with services and resources available within the College system and in the community.

In order to assist the students, the College offers a number of support services, including academic advisement and classroom and testing accommodations.

Students with disabilities are encouraged to identify themselves to the college by providing a copy of their disability documentation to the Learning Resource Specialist, located on the second floor of the Moore Building. Students are required to meet with the Specialist each semester in order to develop a service plan.

The Accommodative Services Office also serves as a National Voter Registration Act registration site.
