Welcome to the Academic Skills Center

Connect With Others to Improve Your Skills!


Our academic skills workshops are a great way to connect with other students and share strategies for success. We also have a variety of online resources and videos to help you improve your skills.

Services Update

While we're operating under restrictins related to COVID-19 for the 2021 fall quarter, the Student Success Center is offering peer tutoring and workshops via Zoom and other online tools.

  • Plan to join a few minutes early in case of sign-in difficulty. You will use your CWID (student ID number) and birthdate to sign in.
  • If you get stuck during sign-in, there is a link that will take you directly to the Zoom session; the host will help  you complete the sign-in after the session.
