The Help You Need to Excel
Moreno Valley College students have an abundance of resources they leverage to help them in their educational pursuits — from resource centers and labs to tutoring and counseling on learning strategies. As an enrolled student, you can access free tutoring, help from faculty and paraprofessionals, study space and resources, and supplemental instruction in historically difficult courses.
Visit the Academic Success Center
The Academic Success Center (ASC) is home to support services designed to help students succeed in their classes, including free tutoring, access to computers and printing, study space and more. We offer in-person and virtual assistance.

Free Services Offered by the Academic Success Center
In the ASC, you have access to top of the line computers and software to complete your assignments, whether you're writing an essay or creating a 3D model. Plus, you have access a wireless pay-per-print station. The computers are available to any student, regardless of the classes you're taking.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) provides a series of peer-facilitated weekly group study sessions, for students enrolled in historically difficult courses. These sessions are free, voluntary and open to all enrolled students. Review sessions are informal, so bring your notes, your textbooks and your questions.
From bettering your study skills or learning about things like MLA format to simply relaxing during finals week, the Academic Success Center hosts interactive workshops and each term to help boost your mood and your grades.
General Help with Assignments
The ASC offers cross-disciplinary support for mathematics and writing regardless of the courses you're taking. In a chemistry class? We have math tutors that can help. Need to write a business proposal? A writing consultant can help you plan and refine your paper. Simply call or use Pisces to get started with an appointment.
Resources and Study Space
In the ASC, students may request calculators, a limited number of textbooks (visit the Library for a wider selection), and anatomical medical models or use while in the Center. These resources may not leave the ASC. Study space is also available, from tables to booths, and you can study on your own or in a group.
Your success doesn't stop here
Even more ways to learn
Need help during off-hours?
Outside of our standard hours, you can also access NetTutor® — a comprehensive online tutoring service for all college courses. MVC has made this service available to you to assist with homework and studying 24/7/365 for most subjects. All tutors are fully trained experts in the courses they tutor. Simply log into Canvas, go to the course you need help with, and click on the NetTutor link. If you don't have access to it through Canvas, talk with your instructor.
Learn, Make, Dream, Create
MVC's iMAKE Innovation Center offers our students and community a unique resource: a makerspace full of high-tech equipment designed to fuel imagination and ingenuity. Access this hands-on learning environment to experiment and create unique physical and digital products.

Print Wirelessly with Paw Prints
Moreno Valley College's Paw Prints system offers wireless cloud printing through wēpa. Print machines are available in the Library (LIB), Academic Success Center (HM 219), and at the Ben Clark campus. You may choose to print your assignments from a computer lab device, by email, by web, from your phone, by USB, or directly from Canvas.
Printing isn't free, so you'll be billed for the documents you do print. You can deposit print money in advance, via PayPal, or use a credit/debit card (a service fee may apply). If depositing print money via iOS, Mac, or Android, more payment options like Venmo and Apple Pay are available.
