Please note that the Academic Success Center, building 26 on the Chula Vista campus, will be closed throughout the remainder of 2020 and services will be provided online.

The Academic Success Center (ASC) is located on the Chula Vista campus in the 26 building. The ASC offers tutoring in subjects from accounting to zoology on a walk-in basis and by appointment. The ASC is managed by the faculty and staff of Learning Assistance Services (LAS). 

Tutoring is free for all current SWC students! All you need is your student ID number. 

Most students quickly find that reading and studying in college are more demanding than they have previously experienced. To make this transition easier, SWC is committed to supporting students to become efficient, independent learners.

This site provides free access to academic support information designed to assist you to successfully complete your SWC course work.

As partners in learning, tutors help students master course material through the application of effective learning strategies. For independent study, online Learning Links highlight proven strategies that lead to increased academic success. 

Mission Statement

To foster self-motivated, independent, lifelong learners through a college wide network of academic tutoring, workshops and advising.

Vision Statement

The Southwestern College Academic Success Center Program exists to assist all members of the campus community in achieving their academic goals. Our programs are cooperatively designed in response to diverse student and community needs. We use a variety of instructional approaches appropriate for different skill levels and learning styles.

To enable them to become efficient, independent learners, ASC helps students master course material and apply effective study strategies. We serve the entire college by helping underprepared students prepare, prepared students advance, advanced students excel.

We strive to offer a learning environment that is personal, caring, and accessible. Every effort in providing learning assistance services is characterized by respect for and appreciation of individual differences.

ASC promotes learning by offering free services in four areas: individual tutoring, group tutoring, computerized tutorials, and workshops. By emphasizing the process of learning, these services support learners as they achieve academic success, gain scholastic independence, and improve their self-esteem. As a resource for students, faculty, and staff, ASC works to provide the fullest opportunities for mastering the strategies, skills, understandings, and attitudes that foster effective and self-directed learning in college and beyond.
