District Areas Reporting to Vice President of Student Success

Student Success Advisors assist students in clarifying their educational goals and in developing strategies to achieve those goals. Advisiors provide students with information about programs of study, course requirements, and college policies and procedures. Academic plans developed by advisors and students lead to the timely completion of degrees or certificates. For students who plan to transfer, an advisor can explore with them the transfer requirements and suggest appropriate coursework; however, the responsibility for course selection and meeting degree and transfer requirements rests with each student. Advisors also provide assistance to students facing barriers to their education including referrals to tutoring, counseling, and other non-academic needs.

The college offers support services for students who have documented disabilities of a temporary or permanent nature. The Access Office provides the following services:

Coordination of classroom and testing accommodations and support services. Consultation with faculty and staff members regarding student accommodation needs. Liaison with community professionals and agencies. To qualify for services, students must contact the Access Office of their choice in order to complete the Application for Services and schedule an initial meeting. Accommodations are generally not provided retroactively, so it is important for students to apply for accommodations and provide documentation early in the enrollment process. This allows more time to implement reasonable accommodations. Please note, there is no deadline to apply for services, as students may submit their application and documentation any time during their tenure at the college.
