This office serves those career and technical students who are having difficulty being successful in their academic program. Students are often times referred by faculty or college staff in an effort to assist the student with being successful. This office was formerly known as Special Populations, which is a term utilized by the Federal Perkins Grant that the college receives.
This grant requires that students be from one of the following six demographic groups:
- economically disadvantaged,
- individual with a disability,
- non-traditional training by gender,
- single parent, including pregnant women,
- displaced homemaker,
- individual with limited English proficiency.
Students that need additional services and activities as allowed under the grant, and that are a Career and Technical Occupation major should schedule an appointment for an initial interview with the Student Resource Center. Services and activities are designed to assist the student with their academic success. Services and activities may include: tutoring, vocational testing, classroom modifications, note-taking, counseling, vocational guidance and career development activities, labor market information, coordination with Michigan Rehabilitation Services, and attendance costs. Please call (269) 927-8866 to schedule an appointment. The office is located in A-218 on the Napier Avenue Campus.
Monetary awards, known as attendance cost funds, may be available, and are based on financial need and program enrollment. Please call, (269) 927-8866 for more information.
