The LAC’s are offering REMOTE tutoring, by appointment, all semester.

Beginning the week of February 16, IN-PERSON tutoring will be available by appointment.

Effective immediately, all students must present evidence of a negative COVID-19 test result prior to arriving on campus for any reason other than a curbside pickup arrangement. 
The test must be administered within 5-8 days of your arrival on campus. After you are initially tested, if you will be on campus regularly, you must also agree to participate in pooled surveillance testing every two weeks. The pooled surveillance tests can be given on campus and you would participate by providing a saliva sample. 
For specifics on what you need to do if you’re coming to campus, how to arrange a test and contact information on testing sites, visit the Fall 2020 page on our website. If you have any questions, contact Stacie Hurwitch at shurwitch@nccc.edu.

· In-person tutoring is by appointment only- we cannot take walk-ins due to COVID-19.
