Academic Support Centers

The Academic Support Centers (ASCs) provide extensive free resources and tutorial instruction to assist students in meeting the demands of their academic courses. Services are available at the Main, Mueller, Chastain, Pruitt, and Dixon Hendry campuses.

In the interest of student success, all individuals taking classes at Indian River State College are expected to dedicate a minimum of two hours of out-of-class time for every one hour of direct instruction. Student engagement in out-of-class activities such as studying, research, completing assignments, and improving skills serves to complement and reinforce the learning that takes place in the classroom.

Academic Support Centers provide academic assistance in English, reading, English for Academic Purposes, math, science, and health science. Additionally, diagnostic/prescriptive programs are available which are based on specific assessments. Students also have access to "Smarthinking" - free, live, online tutoring - by clicking on "Smarthinking" at their Angel homepage.

Other services that are designed to enhance a student’s learning experience include the ASCs’ Academic Workshop Series, the Writing Center, and computer labs.
