The Student Support Center's Mission

The Student Support Center provides academic support services for Helena College students. This is done through a fully networked computer lab and a full staff of tutors who are available during all hours of operation. Our tutors are highly qualified students and staff who receive training on an ongoing basis. They maintain high standards of academic integrity and customer service. Tutoring services are free to students.

Academic Advising assists first semester students by helping them learn about the programs at Helena College, focus their educational and career goals, choose classes for their first semester at Helena College, and register for their classes via MyHC.

Career Services exists to help students and alumni acquire skills and information regarding employment. Career Services provides access to regularly updated job listings, personalized assistance with resume writing, interviewing, job searching, exploring career choices, and occupational trend information.
