FAQs


How much does tutoring cost?

All services offered by the Academic Success Center are absolutely free of charge to any student registered at NWF State College. The types of professional assistance available at the ASC can cost fifty dollars an hour or more elsewhere, but are absolutely free for students at NWF State College. It's quite a deal!

How can I request help?

NWF State College wants you to take the time to use the services of the ASC, to schedule appointments, and meet with the tutors (though walk-in students are welcome), and to put forth a determined effort to succeed in your course work. The ASC is open for more than sixty hours every week. Basic telephone tutoring is also available by calling (850-729-5389).

How will the tutors help me?

The tutors at the ASC are dedicated to helping you develop the skills you need to pass your courses on your own. They will not do the work for you or contribute directly to your grades, but they will work as long and hard as necessary to assist you in learning what you need to succeed on your own.

In what subjects is tutoring available?

The ASC tries to offer tutoring in as many academic subjects as possible. However, the kinds of tutoring offered and the hours tutors are available are subject to demand, and a tutor request log is available in ASC for students to list the kinds of tutors they need. Records are reviewed periodically to determine where students are having the most difficulty. Rest assured, however, that tutors for most general education requirements and many specialized subjects will be available. Listings of available tutors are regularly posted around NWF State College campuses. If you don't see what you need, ask us, and we will try to find it.

Is it OK if I just drop by?

If you need help, simply come to the Student Activities Building, Niceville campus. We will show you around, set up appointments, introduce you to a tutor, and help guide you to success as a college student.
