Student Success Program

What is the Student Success Program?

The Student Success Program at Skyline College provides resources and support to assist students who are either experiencing academic difficulties or who want to improve their academic performance in college. We have dedicated counselors who provide intensive counseling support to help students develop strategies to handle the stresses of academic and personal life. We help students stay on course and successfully receive their degrees and/or transfer.

This program consists of two major steps:

Step One: Student Success Workshop

In a 3-hour motivational workshop, you will learn to:

  • Improve your academic record such as GPA and completion rate
  • Learn strategies to improve your academic standing
  • Understand the “Do’s & Don’ts” regarding dropping classes
  • Understand college policies
  • Learn about various college success skills such as time management and stress management
  • Learn about the different counseling and career courses that promote success
  • Learn about the campus resources that students can utilize such as the Career Center and SparkPoint at Skyline College Center

Step Two: Counseling

After the workshop, you will need to make a counseling appointment with a counselor to develop strategies to getting back to good standing and becoming a successful student. The counselor may also recommend that you submit a mid-semester progress report from your instructors so that you can better monitor your own progress and determine appropriate interventions.

How do I sign up?
