The process for determining accommodations is a collaborative one that may or may not require third-party documentation.

  • Project Succeed helps 160 eligible students each year position themselves for success and pursue excellence through graduation and/or transfer to a four-year college. The staff offers academic success and budgeting strategies as well as career and transfer assistance. Eligible students are U.S. citizens or permanent residents who have low income, whose parents do not have a four-year (bachelor’s) degree, and/or who have documented disabilities. Project Succeed is funded by the U.S. Department of Education as a Student Support Services TRiO program and is staffed by Jean Nash (307) 754-6224, Nancy Fees, and Shannon Lusk. Enrollment is open until the project is filled.

Adjustment issues in college such as homesickness, stress management, and study skills are other common areas for which students may wish to seek assistance from the counselors. There is an intern this semester to assist with counseling needs so students are encouraged to stop by for just one visit or for weekly visits.
