STUDENT snapshot

Most of you know that CCS students aren’t always “typical” college students.  Our students tend to be non-traditional, first generation students, most of whom are also supporting a family, in addition to pursuing their degree or certificate.

This puts our students at a much higher risk of facing barriers to starting, and finishing, their educational journey.  Your support is critical in reaching the students most in need, and ensuring that EVERY student has a chance to achieve their potential!
