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!
