Meet with a Tutor (SPCH and SIGN)


We have tutors available in the Center to help you with your SPCH and SIGN needs. Walk in and meet with a drop-in tutor who can help if there is no wait. Or, simply schedule an appointment at our front desk. If you are unable to come to campus to make an appointment in the Center, contact us during our business hours. Just call (909) 274-6297 and speak with one of our staff members. Please note, we cannot take appointments via voicemail messages left by students. You either need to come in or speak with a staff member over the phone. Can't come to campus at all? Visit the SSSC Canvas Shell (in your Canvas Dashboard) once you have signed-up using the CRN listed on this page.  You will be able to meet with tutors using Zoom during select times listed.
