Tutoring Services

Free tutoring services are offered through the LLS (Library and Learning Services) departments at Allegheny, Boyce, North and South campuses. These services are for CCAC students taking credit courses. Both in-house (face-to-face) and online tutoring services are available regardless of where in the system students take their courses. To get further information on individual campus in-house tutoring services, please call the campus numbers listed below.


In-house Tutoring Services

Each campus provides slightly different in-house services in terms of hours of operation, courses for which tutoring help is offered, workshop availability and procedures for making appointments.

Centers: Students who are interested in tutoring services should contact the learning centers at the appropriate campus.
