See the Student Services Guide for on-campus services available on a walk-in basis or by appointment, plus virtual options. Read the latest updates.

Cocoa Campus Tutoring

If you need help in math, physical or biological sciences, or computer science/computer applications, we have tutors available to assist you in the Cocoa Academic Success Center (ASC), formerly known as the Cocoa Math & Learning Lab. Help with communications courses is available through the Cocoa Writing Center.

Virtual Tutoring Hours: By appointment only
On-Campus : Monday - Thursday, 8 AM - 6 PM, Fridays 9 AM - 1 PM

Services: Virtual Tutoring by appointment only and On-Campus Tutoring, Walk-In or by appointment to avoid wait time. 

Hours sometimes differ; please contact the Cocoa ASC prior to visiting to confirm specific times.

For on-campus tutoring, appointments are not necessary; our tutors assist students on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Workshops: To supplement the classroom experience, the Center may host a variety of workshops during each term on the subjects of math, science and business per request. To request a topic from the list below or a customized workshop, speak to a tutor for additional details.
