The CAL Lab, located in MH133, is an open lab available for CWC student use from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Tutoring assistance is available.

SUCCESS COACHING AND ACADEMIC ADVISING

We offer academic advising for all students through a success coaching model. Success coaching is all about helping you achieve your goals with support and guidance.

Success coaches work to understand and explore your ambitions, goals and identify obstacles to help you select the classes that will support your educational plan such as requirements for two-year degrees and/or transferring to a four-year institution.

At first, CWC students meet with a general success coach and are then additionally assigned to a full-time faculty advisor in the area of study chosen. While the ultimate responsibility for decision-making and educational plans rests with the student working with their success coach, faculty advisors can be valuable resources. Success coaches and faculty advisors assist students with:

  • Identification and clarification of life and career goals
  • Selection of appropriate courses and other educational opportunities
  • Evaluation of progress toward established goals
  • Referral to other campus and community resources when appropriate

General success coaches are located in Rustler Central.

Office hours are Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

*Appointments are encouraged, but drop-ins are available when possible. Faculty advisors maintain regular office hours during the academic term.
