We take pride in our commitment to prepare our students with knowledge and information about campus resources, graduation requirements, academic support, career planning, and personal growth. We encourage our students to be proactive and seek opportunities available to them as well as to seek support from our team.


We strongly encourage you to visit our college   STUDENT SUCCESS CENTERS.   The Assistant Dean oversees both Student Success Centers in the college designed to offer support to students in our 8 departments. Average usage per month ranges from 300-1100 students.
