Students today have a lot of responsibility.  Sometimes life’s responsibilities can get in the way of a student’s success during their college career. Together we can make a difference!

Stop in the Student Success Center to learn about the available resources, and to learn about the workshops we are offering.  You will find information available on topics related to personal finance, stress management, time management and health. We will also design workshops based on student’s needs; so let us know how we can help! 

A Counselor meets with students individually to discuss their non-academic needs, then identifies community resources that may be available to the student. In addition, students will also be coached on problem solving, prioritize goal setting, time management and more.

Counselors will provide short-term counseling for a variety of problems; however, if the problem is of an intense psychological nature the counselor will refer you to an appropriate agency outside of Cleveland Community College. Also, you can take an online self-assessment to learn more about your mental health needs.
