Personal Support

Are personal issues getting in the way of your academic success?

Every now and then, life gets in the way of academic success.  CFCC Counselors are skilled at helping students identify concerns and develop a plan they can use to get back on track. Sometimes this may include considering community resources. Visit Counseling Services today and let us link to the support you need! Please note that CFCC staff cannot recommend professionals or agencies but we CAN provide a list of possible resources.
