The Academic Support Center provides tutoring for students seeking to develop math, statistics, writing, and reading skills. The ASC is staffed by faculty and peer tutors and is located in 925-North of the One Main building. Hours of operation are structured to accommodate day, evening, and weekend classes. The ASC is open to all currently enrolled UHD students and students may attend as often as they like. The Academic Support Center offers the following services:

Center for Math and Statistics Support: C4MS2 provides one-on-one tutoring with mathematics and statistics faculty and peer tutors in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Tutors coach students through their exercises. The goal is to increase each student's ability to understand and apply mathematical principles and knowledge, acquire better study skills, become more independent in their learning, and excel in their math classes.

Writing and Reading Center: WRC tutors dedicate themselves to helping students who seek to become better readers and writers, critical thinkers, and communicators in all written work across the curriculum. The Writing & Reading Center provides a positive learning environment through face-to-face and online tutoring. Students can reserve a WRC tutor appointment online at: www.uhd.edu/wrc

Writing Associates:  WA program includes upper division students who are assigned to one class and work closely with a professor to support students’ critical reading and writing. In addition to offering written feedback on writing assignments, Writing Associates lead small group study sessions to discuss readings and lecture material. They also work with faculty members to help write assignment descriptions thereby clarifying course goals and outcomes for their students.

Computer Lab and Study Areas: ASC has a 65-seat computer lab, laser printers, LCD presentation screen, and quiet comfortable study areas for small group meetings.

Classroom Areas: ASC has three classroom areas for academic workshops and seminars. The ASC has an 18-seat classroom area with dry-erase board and presentation equipment. Adjacent to the ASC are two 15–seat classrooms each with computers, LCD presentation screen, and teleconferencing capabilities.
