TRiO and PowerSkills Services
ACADEMIC ADVISING The TRiO/PowerSkills staff consists of three advisors with specific areas of expertise designed to assist a diverse population of students. Advisors provide mentoring on a regular basis to help students complete their associate degree through a dynamic plan of action individualized for each student.
CAREER/TRANSFER ADVISING TRiO/PowerSkills advisors work very closely with students to develop individual plans of study including support of major and career selection as well as transfer advice and assistance. Students can schedule transfer visits of four-year institutions, tour campuses, and meet with advisors at the university of their choice.
PROFESSIONAL TUTORING TRiO/PowerSkills students may request tutoring in courses they are having difficulty with after being fully admitted to the program. Tutoring services are FREE OF CHARGE to TRiO/PowerSkills students, but consist of a separate application process and specific student responsibilities.
PROFESSIONAL STUDY LABS TRiO/PowerSkills advisors, as well as professional tutors, offer weekly group study labs according to student requests and needs. Study labs offered range from math and chemistry labs to writing and psychology labs. Times and availability will vary per semester.
FINANCIAL LITERACY TRAINING & FAFSA ASSISTANCE Students are encouraged to complete training in financial literacy as part of their plan of study. One-on-one assistance is also offered in tax and FAFSA (Federal Assistance For Student Aid) completion. Annual "Tax-FAFSA Nights" provide students the opportunity for completion of these applications from experts in the field.
COMPUTER/PRINTER LOANS Students fully admitted to the program and in good standing may request calculators, laptops and/or textbooks on a first come, first serve basis. The TRiO/PowerSkillsCenter also offers students private computer, printing and study space.
DISABILITY SUPPORT SERVICES The PowerSkills Coordinator provides accommodations to students who request assistance and complete and submit the appropriate documentation. Services include alternative testing, note taking, priority seating and various technologies to assist students.
