Individual Academic and Personal Advisement

EOF students work with a patient and understanding staff who are available​ to assist with financial, academic, career, and personal concerns. Our advisement approach facilitates a strong rapport with the student body and enables students to achieve academic success.   


EOF students who are required to take basic skills (non​credit) courses or who are​ experiencing difficulty in their classes should seek assistance from​ Tutoring Services. The EOF counselor will monitor the student's ​tutoring participation.


The EOF staff and members of the College community (faculty, counseling advisors and adjunct instructors​) conduct seminars and symposiums to strengthen EOF students'​ academic skills and coping techniques.

Summer Institute
Each summer, the EOF program holds an orientation designed to help selected prospective EOF students adjust to college life and the discipline required for college study. The Summer Institute includes workshops geared toward maximizing achievement in and out of the classroom. Seminar topics include academic excellence and motivation, conflict resolution, leadership and self-assessment
