Science tutoring has a new location...C-115!

The Science Center has tutoring to fit your needs...schedules for study groups & walk-in times are posted weekly outside of your science lecture and lab rooms, and are emailed to you via SCC email.

Individual appointments are set-up by contacting Elaine Hardwick (staff tutor) or Nathan Drill (student tutor) in the Science Center, C-115.

Science Center tutoring summer hours are:


Monday-Thursday, 9 AM - 2 PM
June 9 - July 10 (all BIOL courses)


Tuesdays & Thursdays, 11 AM - 2 PM
July 15 - July 31 (BIOL 225 only)



We have many of the anatomy models in C-115 if you simply need "lab time" to can stop by anytime to utilize our many models! Cannot find the model you want to review? Speak to Elaine about the model you need.

The Science Center space can also be used for study space...quiet, room for individuals or small groups that you have formed on your own...table space to spread out book, notes, handouts. We also have a wall-sized whiteboard to draw out pictures, write equations, etc. Stop by and check us out!

Structured study groups

Structured study groups are held on both campuses and are led by ASC staff tutors who work in conjunction with the instructor. Study groups offer a structured environment in which to study and receive additional resources for classes. ASC staff tutors also offer study skills tips to help students with their course work.

Research has shown that students that participate in study groups receive higher grades than those who do not participate.Students learn to be more confident about their science courses, understand processes, comprehend data, and utilize study skills/tips they may not have known about prior to joining a study group.

Study groups are offered for the following courses on the North Mankato campus:

Introduction to Biology (BIOL 100)
Introduction to Ecology (BIOL 101)
General Biology I & II (BIOL 115/  & 116)
Anatomy & Physiology I (BIOL 225)
Anatomy & Physiology  II (BIOL 235)
Human Biology (BIOL 162)
Genetics (BIOL 211)
Human Anatomy (BIOL 220)
Human Physiology (BIOL 230)
Pathophysiology (BIOL 240)
Microbiology (BIOL 270)
Principles of Chemistry I (CHEM 120)
Principles of Chemistry II (CHEM 121)
Medical Terminology (HC 1000)
Anatomy & Physiology/Diseases & Conditions I  & II (HC 1914 & 1924)
