GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS

To assist you in applying for graduation, plan to meet as early as possible with a counselor. We can:

  • Assist in determination of graduation requirements for program of interest
  • Help develop a timetable for completion of program
  • Complete a degree audit the semester before planned graduation
  • Authorize eligibility for graduation candidacy

Occasionally everyone needs someone to listen to them. If personal problems are interfering with any student’s ability to accomplish his/ her academic goals, Counselors are available to listen, and to help develop a plan to deal with these problems effectively. If it is determined that on-going personal counseling would be beneficial, referrals are made to Women’s Link or other appropriate community agencies.

We provide the following services to students:

  • Follow up for probationary and reinstated students
  • Assistance with decision making and goal setting
  • Assistance with academic difficulties (e.g. coping with college stress and feeling overwhelmed, coping with test anxiety, improving time management, building confidence, identifying personal strengths, etc.)
