Center for Student Success
We provide academic advisement and guidance to all students at St. Francis College.
The Center for Student Success (CSS) is dedicated to providing support and mentoring to all students, including incoming freshmen and transfer students. Academic advisors support the achievement of students' academic, career, and emotional goals by providing them with the tools for self-advocacy and empowerment. Our mission is to guide students through their college journey while enhancing their academic and personal growth and laying a critical foundation for success at SFC and beyond.
In the Center for Student Success, all SFC students are assigned a professional academic advisor, who is an expert in their field of study, who will guide them throughout their entire college experience. Advisors in the CSS can assist students with:
- Personalized academic planning and advisement, including course registration each semester.
- Guidance on exploring and choosing a major and career that is the right fit.
- Building academic success skills, such as time management and study strategies.
- Connecting students with SFC resources such as tutoring, student life, and more.
Our work has been recognized nationally, the magazine, Diverse Issues in Higher Education, featured St. Francis College in an article on how city colleges help students stay in school.
