Student Success

Central Arizona College’s Office of Student Success Initiatives is committed to helping students reach their educational & personal goals.

We work with students directly at New Student Orientations and through focused Student Success Workshops and connect students to helpful resources such as tutoring, accessibility services, Veteran’s services and health & wellness tools.

How we help students succeed:

  • New Student Orientations

    Orientations are an opportunity to connect with other students, faculty and staff to learn all about Central Arizona College.  Our online orientations are a convenient way for students to attend from home or while on the go. On-campus orientations include campus tours to familiarize yourself with your home campus.  Topics covered include working with Advising, utilizing Financial Aid, and using CAC’s technology.

  • The Learning Center: Tutoring

    Free tutoring services are available to students by walk-in or on an appointment basis.  Tutoring for most courses is available to students both in-person and through remote software at all Learning Center locations.  Check out your course list in Blackboard for online tutoring and help.

  • Health & Wellness Resources

    Central Arizona College has a variety or programs and/or partnerships to contribute to the health & wellness of students.  A healthy mind, body, and spirit are important factors for student success.

  • Student Success Workshop Series

    These free, LIVE! online presentations are designed to provide information to students and their families on targeted topics such as transferring to a university, understanding financial aid, successful study strategies, exploring growing career fields and more.

    Participants will be able to view these from anywhere they have internet access on a computer or mobile device and ask real-time questions of our topic experts!
