Academic Success Centers at WVNCC 

Academic Success Centers are located on all campuses of WVNCC.  The ASC on your campus houses tutoring and disabilities services. Retention efforts are also coordinated out of the Wheeling ASC for all three campuses by the Director/”Academic” Student Support Services. Working closely with faculty and other student services staff, WVNCC Academic Success Centers seek to assist students to identify strategies for improving learning and increasing academic performance. To achieve this, we offer students a friendly, attentive atmosphere, in which students of all races, religions, ethnicities, sexes, genders, ages, ancestries, marital statuses, parental statuses and abilities are welcome. Peer and paraprofessional tutors help students in acquiring knowledge and critical thinking skills in a variety of courses. Support Services supply testing accommodations and assistive technology to students with disabilities, per federal requirements. Retention and student success initiatives provide strategies and programs that enhance overall student retention and aid in increasing graduation rates. The ultimate goal of each ASC is to inspire students to become confident, independent learners prepared to face the challenges of higher education and an increasingly global community.
