Welcome to the Academic Skills Center

Connect With Others to Improve Your Skills!


Our academic skills workshops are a great way to connect with other students and share strategies for success. We also have a variety of online resources and videos to help you improve your skills.

Services Update

While you won't be able to visit us in person during the 2021 summer session, the Student Success Center is offering peer tutoring and workshops via Zoom and other online tools.

Skills Workshops

Skills workshops will not be offered over the summer ... See you this fall!

We've made it even easier to access our peer tutoring services and workshops on Zoom. Just click the link below to join a workshop – there's no need to register in advance. Follow the prompts on your screen to sign in and select from a list of available workshops. Here are some more tips:

  • Plan to join a few minutes early in case of sign-in difficulty. You will use your CWID (student ID number) and birthdate to sign in.
  • If you get stuck during sign-in, there is a link that will take you directly to the Zoom session; the host will help  you complete the sign-in after the session.
  • Need verification of attendance? We will provide virtual verification screenshot at end of each session.
