The Academic Success Center


Academic Counselor for International Students

The Academic Counselor for International Students provides the College’s International students with the programming, the academic counseling and advising, the advocacy, and the referrals they need to succeed academically.

To that end, the counselor works in close concert with and refers students to their faculty instructors and major advisors, and to the College’s Tutoring & Math and Writing Centers, both of which offer peer tutors who speak languages other than English.

The counselor works in International Student Support  planning and coordinating programs throughout the semester and in issues involving students’ status as international students. The Academic Counselor prepares international students for fall and spring advisement and assists all international students with course selection and registration.

For further information, please contact Mrs. Maura Shaffer.
