General Center Questions

What can I do in the ASC?
You may approach tutors for questions and answers in almost any subject, study independently, conduct library research, study with a group, or work on the computer to complete academic related coursework such as class papers, lab assignments, projects, or online coursework.

When are tutors available?
Tutors or learning specialists are scheduled every day for various courses and are available on a question and answer basis. You can check the schedule online or in the centers to see when a tutor will be available for your subject area.

How do I know when faculty members are available?
Faculty members assist in the centers on a daily basis in different subject areas.  The schedule is available at each ASC and the ASC website.

Can I print in the ASC?
Yes, but you will need to set up an account on our Papercut system to pay for copying and printing.  You can set up the account on any of the computers in the center.  The cost of printing is ten cents a page.

Can I save my work on the ASC computers?
The ASC computers may not be used to save student work.  We highly recommend that you purchase a saving device, such as a USB flash drive, to save all of the work you complete in the ASC.

If I am not enrolled in classes, may I still use the ASC?
If you are currently registered with the college, you may use the ASC. If you are not enrolled, you will only be able to use the computer for registration and financial aid purposes.

I want to hold a study session. May I work with a group in the ASC?
When space is available, we encourage group work and group study in the ASC and have rooms at some ASC locations you may use when available for group study.

Are children allowed in the ASC?
Children present potential safety risks and may disturb those who are studying or working; therefore, children are not allowed in the ASC.

What can I check out from the ASC front desk?
With a student ID only, students can check out head phones, calculators, and a limited supply of reference books. These are for in-house use only. 

What is my login for signing in to the ASC?
Students must enter their student ID number and highlight the coursework they are working on. 

What is the desktop login for ASC computers?
The username is your student ID number and your password is your FalconNet/Falcon Online password. 

At the Daytona campus, what is the difference between Daytona 500 and Daytona 210?
ASC 210, located in the center of the library, is the primary ASC for reading, English, modern languages, humanities, education, behavioral and social sciences while ASC 500 serves math, science, and business students on the Daytona Campus.

Daily math learning sessions and group tutoring are available at some campuses. Check with the ASC or the ASC website.

When and where are math sample final reviews available in the ASC?
