Students who wish to schedule a campus or remote appointment with a Student Success Center (SSC) tutor should email SSC@stcc.edu or call (413) 755-4715. Your email or voicemail should include your student ID#, a phone number where you can be reached, the days and times you are available, and the course (English Comp 1, Chemistry, or Algebra II) and professor for which you are seeking support. When leaving a message on the SSC voicemail, please speak clearly and be specific.

In-person appointments will be available on a limited basis for the Spring 2022 semester and based on tutor availability. Remote tutoring will continue to be available.

The tutor schedule will be posted on the Student Success Center Portal page. (STCC Account login required)

The tutoring schedule will specify if tutoring is on campus or remote.

Once an appointment is made, the student and the tutor will receive an email confirmation with the tutor’s name, containing appointment details.

A Google Calendar invite will be sent to both the student and the tutor. When the student accepts the reminder by clicking YES, a Google Hangouts link will be available to them in their calendar. Students will use that link to meet up with their assigned tutor during the designated day and time.

Current students should visit the Student Success Center page on the STCC Student Portal stccnet.stcc.edu (login required) for more information on services.

Academic Suspension Support

Students at STCC are expected to maintain their academic performance in order to satisfactorily complete their certificate or degree program. The Academic Standing policy states that students who are placed on academic warning will be placed on suspension, if after their subsequent semester they fail to achieve the minimum 2.0 GPA requirements.

What should you do if you are placed on Academic Suspension? You should take immediate action, because when being placed on Academic Suspension:

  • Your student registration account gets placed on hold  
  • You become in jeopardy of losing your financial aid award.
  • Additionally, if you have already registered for the upcoming semester, your classes will be deleted.

The process:

  • Submit the Appeal of Academic Suspension E-Form.
  • Once the E-Form is received by the Student Success Center (SSC), you will be sent the link to the calendar with the dates available to meet with the Academic Review Board (ARB).
  • The ARB (a caring support team of staff and faculty members) will discuss best practices and ways to ensure that you are set-up for success for the upcoming semester.
  • Keep in mind, in order for you to be eligible to register for the upcoming semester, you must appeal your suspension.
