Student Success Advisors work with students seeking more individualized assistance
to identify resources and strategies to improve course-specific or general academic
success skills. The types of skills that might be addressed include time management,
study habits, self-care for academic success, navigating OCCC technologies, identifying
appropriate internal and external academic resources, and establishing a balance between
school and work.
The Student Success Advisors also respond to flags in the Starfish Early Alert System.
This system allows faculty to express concerns about student performance in their
classes. If a professor expresses a concern, a student will receive an automated email
explaining why the alert was raised and steps that can be taken to address the concern.
In addition, a Student Success Advisor will reach out to the student through a phone
call and/or email to offer assistance. This program is in place to give faculty and
Student Success Advisors an opportunity to help students identify potential barriers
to success, and to explore strategies and resources to overcome them.
