Academic Assistance & Tutoring

Academic Assistance

At Hopkinsville Community College, our goal is for you to succeed. In order to help students be successful, we offer a variety of services and programs to help you achieve your goals.

Need Help?

Here are just a few of the programs/services we offer in various areas: 

Academic Help for Credit Classes

  • Academic Counseling  provides support, helps establish educational plans, and assists in developing a plan to help achieve your academic goals.
  • Early Alert System identifies students determined to be "at risk" due to academic or personal factors--you will receive a letter from the college providing you with support information when you are not attending classes or have other risk factors. Pay attention to these strategies! 
  • Academic Support provides tutoring and teaches study/life skills necessary to be successful in higher education. You can also take the class, GEN 102 - Strategies for Academic Success, to help you be more successful in college.

  • Career and Transfer Assistance   is available to assist students with career assessment and exploration, resume writing and job interview coaching.

  • Testing   provides COMPASS, GED, computer literacy, business, and industry testing.
  • Library Services include help with research skills, distance learning services and a computer lab.
  • Disability Services ensures that individuals with documented disabilities have equal access to all educational opportunities.
  • Developing a My Academic Plan (MAP) is an opportunity to meet with your advisor and develop a structured class list to help you achieve your educational goals–some of the plan guidelines are also available on the Programs of Study pages. You must have a signed plan developed with your advisor on file to self-register for classes. You can find your advisor's name in your Student Self Service Student Center.
