What is the Academic Support Canvas?

The Academic Support Canvas page is a Canvas classroom that is open and available for all WCC students who wish to use any of the academic support services that are available, and it includes resources from the Student Success Center, the WCC Library, the ESL department, and the Academic Success Workshops. To access and get started using the Academic Support Canvas page, you can self-enroll using this link or you can contact Deanna Pierro at dpierro@yccd.edu to be added to the course.

  • If you are unprepared for the session, the session may be rescheduled.
  • If you are repeatedly unprepared for tutorial sessions, you may be dropped from the tutorial program. (You will then need to see the Center Staff before making further appointments).

  • Keep the noise level down.
  • Turn OFF Cell Phones.
  • Do not interrupt tutoring sessions.
  • Do not eat or drink in the Center (water bottles are an exception).
