Working closely with faculty and other student services staff, WVNCC Academic Support Centers seek to support the development of personal responsibility, self-management, and self-awareness that lead to academic, professional and personal success.
We strive to offer a comfortable, student-centered, learning-focused environment where students of all races, religions, ethnicities, sexual orientations, genders, ages, ancestries, marital statuses, parental status, and abilities are welcome. Peer and paraprofessional tutors help students with the acquisition of content knowledge, critical thinking, and learning/study skills.
Retention and student success initiatives and programs are designed to increase overall retention and graduation rates. The ultimate goal of each ASC is to support students as they become confident, independent learners who persist academically and professionally.
