Service Area Outcomes

There’s a lot we want to help you with but here are just two of our goals!

  • SAO 1: New, incoming transfer/degree/certificate seeking students will obtain an AEP (abbreviated educational plan) or CEP (complete educational plan) by the time they complete three semesters or 15 units.
  • SAO 2: Students with immediate educational and career counseling needs will have their issue(s) resolved through walk-in counseling services or they will be given guidance on what to do next.
