Academic Success Center (ASC)

Visit Early. Visit Often.

FALL 2020:


We look forward to serving you.  Out of an abundance of caution, we have halted our in-person services for the fall term. We will continue to provide scheduled operations and services virtually.

During this time of uncertainty, we are seeing an increased need for  academic support. The ASC is here to help. We have established additional appointment hours and weekly walk-in hours that are open to all students.

We have several services to help you meet your academic goals including tutoring, test reviews, weekly study groups, Supplemental Instruction, English Language Learner(ELL) support/Reading Comprehension and Academic Coaching. We support over 90 courses and are dedicated to the academic success of our HBU students.

All of our services will be conducted remotely through university Blackboard services (for fall 2020).

Students can schedule appointments via Navigate or e-mail

To make an appointment on Navigate:

  • Use the HBU Portal to access Navigate
  • Select “Schedule an Appointment” on the top right corner
  • Select Tutoring as the type of appointment and select your service
  • The location is “ASC Online Tutoring”
  • Pick your course or type of tutoring and select a time that works for both you and the tutor
  • The link to your “Virtual Tutoring Session” will be in your conformation email

The front desk will be staffed from 8:00am-10:00pm for in-person assistance. 

For all questions and concerns please email
