Academic Tutoring and Assistance

For academic assistance, use the following to guide you.

STEP 1:  See Your Professor

You should always start with your professor.  Your professor is a qualified expert in the course material.  All faculty members have dedicated office hours to assist you in your course.  Check your course syllabus for contact information and office hours. 

STEP 2:  Visit a Student Tutor

The Department of Computing Sciences offers tutoring for most major courses. Tutoring labs (AOC2 215 and AOC2 241) are open for drop-in assistance or appointments during the major fall and spring semesters (except student holidays). 

Labs and Study Spaces

Study Space

The Study Space is located in AOC2 215.  In addition to tutoring, this room offers a quiet study space, Windows computers, printing services, and an interactive whiteboard. The whiteboard is Bluetooth-compatible and is great for group collaboration. The tables can be reconfigured for study groups.  

Maker Space

The Maker Space is located in AOC2 241. In addition to tutoring, this room offers an exploratory space where students can use a Linux computer, a Bluetooth-enabled interactive whiteboard, a 3D printer, an RFID kit, Raspberry Pi, Oculus Rift, and more. All students are welcome to explore. Not sure how to use some of the technology? Ask a tutor.


Academic Advising & Career Guidance

All computing majors and minors have a Department of Computing Sciences full-time faculty member who serves as an academic advisor. Faculty advisors provide advice related to degree requirements and career guidance.

All CCU students must work with their academic advisers in order to register for classes. At the start of each semester, a registration hold is placed on your account. Once you get in touch with your adviser, that hold is lifted and you are able to register for classes.

Student Technology Help Desk / Student Computing Services

The University provides technical assistance for students. Student Computing Services (SCS) maintains the general-access labs and CCU accounts. SCS supports residence hall technology operations and provides technical assistance to troubleshoot technical issues including: 
• Wi-Fi
• Anti-virus
• Safe computing
• Assisting students with computers problems
