We are dedicated to providing you a quality advising experience. Academic advisors seek to promote student success through educating, inspiring and empowering you with your pursuit of academic and career goals. All students are assigned an academic advisor upon admission with the College and will continue to have an academic advisor throughout your four years at YHC. You must attend an academic advising session in order to be approved for course registration. However, you are encouraged to meet with your academic advisor throughout the year, not just during the advising period. Sign up for an appointment to meet with your academic advisor today! Not sure who your advisor is? Contact the Registrar with questions regarding your advisor assignment, specific degree requirements and academic policies.
Meet one-on-one to discuss your academic goals, study skill development and campus resources available at the College. Academic coaching is facilitated by both SSC professional staff and ACE peer coaches. During an academic coaching session, you can discuss academic and/or GPA goals, study skills, time management, and other relevant skills and strategies. We want to help you improve your current studying and course preparation efforts and have you walk away with new skills and strategies to benefit your next steps in college. Academic coaching is for all students with all academic abilities and goals! Make an appointment with an ACE Coach or SSC professional today!
You may have been contacted by the SSC staff because you are on academic probation, have a financial aid warning/probation appeal coaching mandate or are admitted to the College on a waiver. Students on academic probation are strongly encouraged to meet with their academic advisor throughout the semester to participate in academic coaching and support. Students who are participating in the FAP appeal process are required to meet one-on-one with an SSC professional for three academic coaching sessions. If you are admitted on a waiver, you are strongly encouraged to participate in our academic coaching program within your first six weeks at the College.
Once you’ve participated in the initial career exploration process, you’re encouraged to meet with Mentor and Career Specialist Jenny Pate, to discuss skill development, resumé building, and interview preparation. Once there, you can discuss your next steps in the career search process. Beyond one-on-one consultations, Pate also facilitates a series on success (SOS) focused on career skills and hosts events including trips to career fairs throughout the year. Make an appointment with her today!
Meet with a faculty or peer tutor to review course content, clarify questions and gain confidence in the subject matter. You can make an appointment online, but drop-ins are always welcome. The current tutoring schedule is available here.
We are committed to providing an environment in which all students are given a reasonable opportunity to learn and work to their full potential. In compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the College will provide reasonable accommodations for students with known disabilities. Student Disability Services staff will work with each qualified student to design an individualized and confidential Student Support Plan and to coordinate accommodations throughout the academic term. Additional information is available here.
The transition to college can be very difficult and the SSC wants to support your steps to do your best each semester. There are times where you may struggle early in the semester and without appropriate support, you may not do well within or outside the classroom. If the center is notified, you will receive outreach from the SSC staff and campus partners for in-class performance (class absence, academic assistance, mid-semester grades, desire to transfer) and out-of-class behavior concerns.
Employers want to see several internship and work experiences prior to you graduating from College. Internships provide you a wealth of experience, skills, and new knowledge to benefit your career decision-making process and your professional network. Many academic programs (majors) will have opportunities to gain class credit for internship experiences, but you’re always encouraged to participate in an internship either for credit or not for credit. Contact Mentor and Career Specialist Jenny Pate for more information.
We’re always looking for competent and energetic students to serve as peer tutors, peer coaches, and student workers. As a peer leader in the SSC, you will build meaningful relationships with students, serve others in your work, and gain skills and leadership needed for future careers and experiences. Check out our enewsletter, This Week @ YHC, follow us @YHC_Success and like us on Facebook to gain access to application materials throughout the year, as available.
Tutoring is available for all students in several courses. The schedule and locations are updated each semester and are available here. We host faculty and peer tutors at the College. Peer tutors are students who have made excellent grades in their classes and who are often majoring in the area they tutor. Drop by or make an appointment today.
