Sometimes, everybody needs a little help.

That’s why we’re here! The Learning Center provides free academic support to QVCC students of both the Danielson campus and the Willimantic center.

We encourage all students to meet with our tutors whenever they need a helping hand! A few sessions working with a tutor can help you stay comfortable with your course work and keep you on track with your academic goals!
