Student Success Center (SSC)

The Student Success Center (SSC) is located on the second floor of the Library-Student Success Center (L-SSC) building. We welcome all Compton College students to explore the resources available to improve their chance at success. We offer free in-person and online tutoring for indivduals and small groups, study rooms available by reservations, and a computer lab with up to date software and printing.

The CCC's California Virtual Campus-Online Education Initiative (CVC-OEI) partnered with Link-Systems International Inc. to offer tutoring resources that augment local college tutoring services. Currently, NetTutor allows the SSC to extend its support services beyond what is available on ground; specifically, for high-demand subjects such as statistics, chemistry, anatomy, and English. NetTutor is available year-round, 24/7, on demand for live tutoring, question drop-off, and writing feedback. ​Like Compton College SSC tutors, NetTutor tutors are highly-qualified and trained to College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA) standards. 

Students must access NetTutor through Canvas.
