12:45 PM, Friday Update: All EFSC Campuses will reopen Monday, Oct. 3rd and classes and events will resume that day as scheduled. Students should contact their instructors for questions about the impact on class assignments or tests during the closure for Hurricane Ian, which began on Wednesday, Sept. 28th. Updates will be shared here and via email, text and social media as needed. View our Student Services Guide for more information about the impact for on-campus and virtual student services.

Cocoa Campus Tutoring

If you need help in math, physical or biological sciences, or computer science/computer applications, we have tutors available to assist you in the Cocoa Academic Success Center (ASC), formerly known as the Cocoa Math & Learning Lab. Help with communications courses is available through the Cocoa Writing Center.

Virtual Tutoring Hours: By appointment only
On-Campus : Monday - Thursday, 8 AM - 6 PM, Fridays 9 AM - 1 PM

Services: Virtual Tutoring by appointment only and On-Campus Tutoring, Walk-In or by appointment to avoid wait time. 

Hours sometimes differ; please contact the Cocoa ASC prior to visiting to confirm specific times.

For on-campus tutoring, appointments are not necessary; our tutors assist students on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Workshops: To supplement the classroom experience, the Center may host a variety of workshops during each term on the subjects of math, science and business per request. To request a topic from the list below or a customized workshop, speak to a tutor for additional details.
