Learning Commons: Academic Success Center

Welcome to the OJC Learning Commons

Welcome to the Academic Success Center

The Academic Success Center (ASC) is adjacent to Wheeler Library in the Learning Commons. The ASC provides students with additional areas to study independently and in group settings. Students who visit the Academic Success Center can make appointments with academic tutors or peer coaches throughout the day and into the evening hours.  

Students can receive free one-on-one tutoring in the ASC in all math and science courses, along with free tutoring in research and writing.

Group tutoring and interactive experiences that supplement classroom lectures and labs are held daily in the Academic Success Center. Commonly referred to as PLUS Sessions, students can attend these sessions free of charge to gain the additional support and understanding they need or success in their math and science courses. Anatomy and Physiology models, Apple TVs and other assistive learning devices are available for student use.

In addition to individual and group tutoring, our professional tutors and peer coaches manage three study zones per week in the Learning Commons. These zones include: (1) Research, Reading, and Writing; (2) Math; and (3) Science. Collaborative student learning is encouraged within these study zones and tutors and peer coaches are available to assist students as needed.
