Learning Center

Need Tutoring?

Learning new subject matter can be difficult, and sometimes you may need a little help.  The Learning Center provides tutoring support to QVCC students at both the Danielson campus and the QV@WT site (Windham Technical High School).

Whether it is math, English, Spanish, or another course which you find challenging, we encourage students (or groups of students) to meet with our tutors.  A few sessions with a tutor can help you stay on track with your course work.

Make an appointment with a tutor

  • Danielson: You can stop by the Learning Center (in room C232), or call (860) 932-4014.
  • QV@WT:  Tutoring is available in the Library.  For more information about the QV@WT site, including information on Tutoring Hours, click here.

Student Photo IDs

All QVCC students are encouraged to obtain a student photo ID.  Student IDs are free to all students who are registered for credit courses at QVCC.

To get your student ID, come to the Learning Center in Danielson with a photo ID and your Banner number.  The Learning Center staff will take your picture and prepare the ID on the spot.  Student IDs can be issued at any time during normal Learning Center hours.

Testing in the Learning Center

The Learning Center administers and oversees Basic Skills Assessment Testing (BSA) for all new students.  For more information on BSA testing or to schedule a time to take the BSA, click here.

The Learning Center also provides proctored testing for QVCC students that includes CLEP, DSST, CBE (credit by examination), and course make-up tests.

CLEP and DSST testing are provided through outside services and all are fee-based.  CLEP and DSST provide transferable college credit if completed with a passing score.  Appointments are required: please contact William Army at (860) 932-4055 to schedule  an appointment.

CBE tests are QVCC-provided tests that can be taken to gain college credit at QVCC.  CBE’s provide QVCC credit only; CBE credits do not transfer and the CBE does not effect the student’s GPA.  Students must be currently registered in at least one credit class at QVCC, have the permission of the faculty member in charge of the subject area, and pay a $35.00 fee to take a CBE.

Make-up testing can be provided, at the request of a faculty member, for individual students who have missed scheduled class exams or who qualify for special accommodations.  There is no fee for make-up testing.

All testing requires a photo ID to be shown upon arrival.  Students who do not have a photo ID with them will not be permitted to test until a valid photo ID is produced.

Complete information on testing is available in the Learning Center.
