students the opportunity to enhance their educational experience. These services include
Student Services vocational/academic counselors, Library, EITC Tutoring Center, Center for
New Directions (career and personal counseling), Adult Basic Education, and Disability
Resources and Services.
One of EITC’s newest programs is the Connect for Success (CFS) program. This program is a
continuous enrollment initiative sponsored by generous contributions from the J.A. and
Kathryn Albertson Foundation and the Eastern Idaho Technical College Foundation.
The CFS program is a three-year project designed to measurably increase higher education
access, retention and success for 240 “at-risk” underserved students with “high-risk” factors
such as being non-traditional, first generation, single parent and low income students. It
serves as a managed scholarship program that provides financial assistance, personal and
career counseling, and academic tutoring to ensure that students’ first year of college is a
success. The scholarship amount covers up to $2,000 in tuition, fees, books and education
