What Makes Our Program Effective?

Personal attention:
You will get to know our staff personally and get individual attention when difficulties arise because we limit the number of students we serve for just this reason.

Unique services:
You will find help here that is not found elsewhere on campus.

Comprehensive services:
Our staff will introduce you to people and programs, on and off campus, that can help you when we are not able to.

Opportunities for excellence:
Our focus is helping you achieve academic excellence.
