The Undergraduate Advising Center (UAC) is a University service staffed by professional counselors, advisors, interns and peer advisors committed to providing guidance and information to help undergraduate students enjoy a successful college experience.
The mission of the College of Science and Engineering Success Center is to support students in achieving their academic and professional goals. We advise students on general education requirements, refer them to university resources, and aid them in completing their degrees in a timely manner.
Career Services & Leadership Development helps students and alumni in developing, evaluating, and/or implementing self-directed career, education, and employment decisions and plans.
Counseling provides an opportunity for students to explore personal problems or concerns in a brief treatment model. Students come to CPS for reasons as varied as the people themselves; personal problems involving relations with parents or peers, emotional or social difficulties, relationship conflicts, anxiety or depression, sexuality and orientation, concerns about academic progress or direction, and other issues.
Student Health Services provides basic care for acute and chronic problems, promotes health awareness, educates students about preventive care, disease management and therapeutic choices, and helps students develop the skills to manage their own health.
