The Columbia College Academic Achievement Center (AAC) serves the entire Columbia College student body. Our primary goal is to assist students in becoming more independent, efficient, and effective learners. We are here to help students improve their academic skills and aid in their academic success.
Free tutoring services are available to all Columbia students with the completion of a TUTORING REFERRAL (link) each semester. Students simply ask an instructor or counselor to complete a Tutoring Referral and then bring it to the AAC to make a tutoring appointment.
Fall Tutoring Schedule available soon!

The AAC employs trained peer tutors who have excelled in the classes they tutor and have been recommended by Columbia College faculty. AAC tutors were once in your place and can help you learn strategies to succeed.

AAC No-Show Policy: Failure to cancel an appointment at least two hours before the appointment or arriving more than ten minutes late to an appointment is considered a "No-Show." Two No-Shows will result in the loss of tutoring privileges for the semester. Please note: Early morning appointments must still be cancelled with two hours' notice to avoid a No-Show. Call 588-5088 to leave a message.
