The Center for Academic Excellence offers FREE tutoring services upon faculty’s referrals and the completion and submission of the Student Referral Card (SRC).

- Instructor will sign each SRC and encourage students to bring the completed and signed SRC to the CAE.

- Students will be assigned to a highly qualified tutor once the completed and signed SRC is received by the CAE staff.
- CAE tutoring services are available to all HCC curriculum students.
The CAE personnel strives to assist and provide tutoring services to all HCC curriculum students as it directly relates to the academic coursework. Tutoring does not interfere with classroom instructional time. Tutoring services are provided only when students are not scheduled to be in their class or lab. Students must attend class before attending tutoring sessions.
The CAE collaborates with the Student Support Services program (SSS) as a referral resource for student recruitment. Students are encouraged to take advantage of our resources. The CAE collaborates with the LRC to furnish an audio visual area for viewing material that is directly related to courses. The CAE collaborates with the different departments to assist with scheduling study groups, biology and math labs to provide drop-in and additional tutoring.
The CAE assist students with English, Biology, computers, history, psychology, Microsoft Office applications, such as Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint, Blackboard, Web Advisor, and much more. The Zoom Text and JAWS software programs are available for students with a document disability and accommodations set-up through the HCC Counseling department (also see Counselor Center Services).
CAE Student Responsibility
The CAE is considered as an extension of the classroom; therefore, children are not allowed in the CAE unless they are accompanied by an adult. Cell phone usage or texting must be taken care of outside the CAE. Students must turn off or put on silent/vibrate mode all electronic devices (cell phones, pagers, etc.) before entering the CAE. Social media networks (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, games, etc.) are not permitted unless it directly relates to class assignments.
Students are expected to be civil to others and adhere to the posted rules governing appropriate behavior set forth by the CAE. All students and tutors are expected to contact the CAE staff in the event they are not available to attend any scheduled tutoring session. All students must sign in/out and provide all information requested on the Student Attendance Record (SAR) before each tutoring session or computer usage. SARs are maintained and used to track and document important FTE statistical data.
Students are expected to comply with the "Computer Use Regulation" posted in the CAE. Inappropriate or illegal use of the Internet or computers may result in the loss of HCC Internet and computer privileges. Violators will be referred to the CAE Coordinator or to Dean of Student Services.
