Student Success Plan
A counselor helps the individual student identify their primary
needs and the steps they will take to address their needs. For
a student who wishes to explore career possibilities or acquire
new workplace or personal skills, a career development plan
is formed. If the student wants to ensure success in their
technical program or optimal placement in employment, the
counselor will help create a student success plan. In either case, a
counselor will help each student clarify their goals and the action
steps they will take to achieve them. Sometimes an assessment
such as IDEAS (Career Information System) is used. Support
services/classes and referral to additional help both on and off
campus are included. Regular appointments with a counselor to
monitor student progress toward goals are scheduled as desired.
Services for Students in Nontraditional Programs
Counseling, case management, and support services
are available for students in programs of training for an
occupation usually performed by the opposite gender.
The Center for New Directions also serves under-prepared
adults, single parents and displaced homemakers who wish to
improve their education or employment. The Center maintains
an active Advisory Board.
