Student Academic Support Services

HMCSE is committed to providing academic support systems which are devoted to student retention, graduation, and professional success in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics programs (STEM). Academic support programs provide additional resources for STEM majors both in and out of the classroom.

Student Academic Support Services

The academic rigor of STEM programs dictates the necessity for resources which provide practical and application-based learning opportunities as well as faculty mentoring for students. In collaboration with HMCSE faculty, the following academic support services are designed to encourage success and are provided at no cost to students.

Tutoring and Workshops

Tutoring and Workshops are offered in Building 4, Room 321.  Calculus Lab - Summer 2022 Semester Schedule


Workshops are designed for students to solve problems using techniques learned during lecture courses. Under the leadership of faculty, workshops are led by student facilitators on a weekly basis to reinforce classroom knowledge.  Workshops are optional although most faculty offer incentives for attendance.  Workshops are currently offered for PHY 2048 Physics with Calculus I, PHY 2053 Physics with Algebra I, and MAC 2233 Business Calculus. 


Tutoring services are provided in a variety of subjects and locations on campus.  Tutoring is available in general education courses as well as many of the STEM programs. A comprehensive list is available at
