Academic Coaching Program

COVID-19 Update: Thinking of you at this time!

In light of the College's recent decision to extend spring break and continue the semester remotely, the physical offices and labs in the SMART Space will be closed until further notice. We will, however, be offering virtual coaching and tutoring through Smarthinking & Google Hangouts Meet.
