The Student Success and Tutorial Center (SSTC) is a collaborative space where students can receive assistance from highly trained peer tutors and dedicated faculty who specialize in a variety of academic fields. The center also offers an embedded counselor and provides a comfortable environment for students to study, research, or work on homework, individually or in groups. The SSTC is equipped with computers, power outlets, charging stations, printing stations, loaner battery packs and calculators, Wi-Fi, and click-and-share collaborative screens in the study rooms.

*Students must be enrolled in credit courses to utilize SSTC services and will be enrolled in the EDU-112A noncredit course.  This is an optional, open entry/open exit supplemental learning assistance course and there are no fees for this course.  The SSTC is located in the Downey Learning Resource Center, first floor.
