Counseling and Transfer
Special honors counselors work with each class of Scholars to provide academic advising, personal counseling, and transfer advising. Our Scholars Program provides several special services to its participants.
As an incoming student, you will be invited to special academic orientation sessions in early June. You will plan your fall course schedule and register for classes at these sessions. Honors counselors provide individual counseling. Our staff members will provide you and your parents with information concerning honors core course work, transfer, financial aid, and the summer experience.
Our counselors keep in contact with Scholars through appointments and email. You can meet individually with an honors counselor to discuss transfer, plan your class schedule, or talk about personal issues.
You can enroll in special sections of student development courses to explore issues concerning time management, career development, and college survival skills.
The College holds workshops to provide information about the transfer process to four-year colleges and universities. Honors counselors assist Scholars in applying for admission and obtaining information about transfer credits. Honors counselors will assist you in creating a scholarship portfolio, which highlights your academic accomplishments.
Phi Theta Kappa is the national honors society for students at two-year colleges.
