Recipients of these services must be citizens or nationals of the United States who are currently enrolled in a credit program. They must also meet at least one of the following requirements:

  1. first-generation student;
  2. financial aid eligible; and/or
  3. presence of a disability.

Counselors are available to help students with personal, financial and academic issues including guidance in the successful transition into a college environment. A writing instructor tutors students in the progressive steps in planning, organizing, writing, revising and proofreading written academic assignments. Instruction is also available on the basic use of word processing software and the Internet.
