Moon, Brenda G.; Boland, Reginald
This handbook presents Rowan-Cabarrus Community College's (North Carolina) model of academic advising as embodied by its Student Success Center. Divided into seven parts, this handbook contains the following sections: a mission statement, Early Alert forms, evaluation tool, forms section, organizational chart of pre-college program, brochure, and a Web pages list. The mission of the college's Student Success Center is to provide all entering students enrolled in the Step Ahead program with services that will help them attain career and life goals. This goal is achieved through improved academic advising and mentoring by dedicated, specially trained advisors. Advisors will provide appropriate academic placement, help identify suitable academic support services, and assist in the students' smooth transition into chosen academic programs. The faculty and staff are dedicated to providing the time and effort to advise and counsel students on academic and career paths that appear to be in their best interest. Student development, growth, and maturity should be the result of the advising program. This handbook also describes useful resources provided by the Student Success Center, including academic policies and procedures, advisor's role and responsibilities, learning resource center, writing resource center, and math tutoring-preparation for placement testing.
