Academic Success and Tutoring Center (ASTC)
Because of the pandemic and the College’s commitment to the safety of our students and employees, all labs on the main Fairfield campus and at the Vacaville and Vallejo Centers will be closed for in-person hours in the fall.
All Solano Community College students are able to access free online tutoring through NetTutor. Simply log in to Canvas, pick a course, and on the side there is a link for NetTutor. Online math tutoring is available 24 hours a day, every day of the week. Writing assignments can be submitted 24 hours a day, every day of the week and all writing submissions to NetTutor will maintain a 48-72 hour turnaround time. All other subjects will follow the NetTutor subject hours for the semester.

A recent study done by Solano's Research & Planning Department shows that, on average, those who use the ASTC academically outperform those who don't use our services.**
**Research & Planning Department’s survey was July 2018: Retention – ASTC users 92.4% vs. non-ASTC users 88.4%; Success rates – ASTC users 77% vs. non-ASTC users 70%; Average term GPA – ASTC users 2.40 vs. non-ASTC users 2.09; Students who ultimately drop or fail class – only 6.3% visited the ASTC.
