Academic Support Center

WE ARE HERE TO HELP!

The Academic Support Center (ASC) is a tutoring service that supports students’ academic success and encourages students’ independence by embracing diversity and promoting collaborative learning in positive and welcoming environments.

What students are saying about the ASC:

“Great help! Easy to understand.”
“Thanks for making my math struggles easier.”
“This place is awesome. I love it and how helpful the people are.”

We support students with a mixture of in-person tutoring, online tutoring, and year-round workshops. Our staff is a mix of students and professionals. Professionals have completed at least an associate’s degree, and students have taken the courses that we support at ICC and have achieved a minimum grade of B. We have locations at the East Peoria and Peoria Campuses.
