One of the best campus resources is tutoring for math, reading, and writing. With reading, the tutor assists in improving vocabulary skills, reading comprehension, and spelling. For writing, tutoring gets into detail with thesis statements, essays, research papers, and grammar and mechanics. Lastly, there are tutors for all types and levels of math, so there is no need to worry about failing a math course. At CCBC, the tutor service will match up students with the right tutor, who can sometimes be a professional or even a peer. Tutor request forms are available in the Student Success Center. Tutoring is also available online through OWL (Online Writing Lab) and ELMO (Essex Learning Math Online). People at CCBC are eager to help any student that needs assistance.
Other campus resources include counseling, child care, career services, academic advisement, and SIMON. Counseling is for any student that wants to talk something out with a professional. Child care is a convenient and affordable resource for moms and dads going to school; while they're in class, the little one can be learning something at daycare. With academic advising, the adviser helps schedule classes, find scholarships, map out the two-year plan for graduation, find transfer schools, and register students for placement tests. SIMON is where students can find all of their records, from transcripts to final grades. A student can register for classes, drop or add classes, check midterm and final grades, and view his or her schedule and financial aid awards. It's all there! Even if a person doesn't want to make an appointment on campus to register for classes, he or she can do it online using SIMON.
