Student Success Resources
The CGCC Student Handbook - Your Guide to Student Success
The CGCC Student Handbook contains vital information for first year success. It includes planning pages, step by step instructions, student success resources, and information on support programs and services.
Promoting Access to Student Success (PASS)
If you find yourself struggling academically for any reason, contact any advisor for help. We are here to listen and support you.
The PASS program provides additional support and guidance to help identify what might be keeping you from success, get back on track, and connect you to other resources.
CGCC Faculty and Staff may also refer students for assistance. If you are concerned about another student, you can make a confidential referral as well. Contact Ryan Brusco, firstname.lastname@example.org, (541) 506-6066.
Confidential, short-term counseling services are available to CGCC students experiencing problems that interfere with success in school or who need additional support.
STEPS Success Coaches on the Hood River and The Dalles campuses are responsible for connecting you with those resources, whether you’re in need of food, transportation, housing, healthcare, or shelter from domestic violence.
