Students Walking Across Campus

Center for Student Engagement

The Center for Student Engagement supports students in academic planning and career exploration. The Center is a prospective student’s first encounter after the application process with Admissions and Records.

If placement testing is warranted, the student is given pertinent information to facilitate assessment preparation. If needed, referral to the CER for testing tutorials is made at this time. Following placement testing, a Center Advisor is identified to work with the first-semester student and to continue as the student’s advisor until priority registration for the next semester begins. At that time, the Center and the office of Admissions will designate an appropriate advisor based on the student’s developmental course assignment and credential declaration status.

As an integral component of the Student Support Services area, the Center for Student Engagement ensures all students have an appropriate assigned advisor, refers undecided students to the Career and Transfer Service Center, provides training and workshops in advising best practices, and refers students to appropriate resources when needed.
