Welcome! Here's Help Navigating College

This article appeared in a 2015 issue of the student newsletter.

Everything you need to know to help navigate college is just a click away!

We have compiled Web links and phone numbers that most students find helpful. You'll find links to registering for classes, financial aid, tutoring and much more. Be sure to read our Student Information Blog, too; it has updated information that you'll find useful.

Our goal is make your college experience as easy as possible.

Another thing to keep in mind: Your college's academic advisors are there to help you. Help yourself by getting to know an advisor:
