The HCC Learning Assistance Center's registration form that is used by students to apply for a tutor helps the Student Support Services Program identify eligible students for the program. Students interested in joining SSS should complete our online interest form and an SSS advisor will schedule a virtual intake session.

This program serves students working towards their first associates and bachelors degree only.

Giving makes a difference! Your support helps students along their pathways to success.
