Academic Success and Tutoring Center (ASTC)

Welcome to the Academic Success and Tutoring Center!

The ASTC is a space that provides a wide variety of FREE services to ALL Solano Community College students. The ASTC is staffed with faculty, staff, and peer tutors who are there to support the scholarly growth and success of Solano’s students by providing education, guidance, and resources to help students become strong, independent and active learners to achieve academic and professional success.

Online Tutoring with SCC Tutors

Academic Success and Tutoring Center services are available to students by self-registering at the following Canvas link: https://solano.instructure.com/enroll/EKEA7Y

To be able to connect with the tutors in Canvas, students need to enroll to the ASTC Canvas shell. This is a free service for all SCC students, and it can be added at any time during the semester. It will never appear on transcripts and will not affect financial aid. To enroll, simply click on the following link: https://solano.instructure.com/enroll/EKEA7Y. This will open up Canvas, and you will need to click on the “Enroll in this Course” button.
