Health and Wellness – A Top Priority at CCS Online


, , , , , , ,

Online classrooms can present unique obstacles for an instructor. This method of teaching may not present the instructor with the opportunity to observe and evaluate their student’s mental health. The warning signs of an online student could prove more difficult to discern than that of a face-to-face interaction.

Here at CCS Online we understand that extending Health and Wellness services to our students, especially Mental Health services, is vital to the lifeblood of our mission. We strive to provide our online community with information from preventive care, to managing or coping with their mental health issues. Factors that may put a great deal of stress on your online student which could lead to more serious mental health problems include unmotivated students who are not confident in their computer skills, and/or have less-stable home environments.

Here are some supportive resources to tap into:

The 5 pm program will mark the first time in several years that all of the College’s academic divisions will be included in the same ceremony. This larger single ceremony, follows the Adult Education celebration at 2 pm,

Students completing a program as of Fall 2013, Winter 2014, Spring 2014 and/or Summer 2014 are eligible to participate in the June 2014 Commencement.

5 easy steps to graduation …

Caps and gowns will be distributed to STUDENTS in the Lair Student Center on the SCC campus, 8 am – 3 pm, beginning June 3.

Students who are unavailable at these times should make arrangements for someone else to pick up their cap and gown. Any student that has not picked up a cap & gown or has not made arrangements will not be able to participate in the ceremony.

Honor and military cords will also be distributed at this time. Students MUST have a 3.5 or above cumulative GPA as of Winter quarter to be eligible for an honor cord. Students who ‘anticipate’ becoming eligible after Spring quarter may come back in the summer to get their cord.
