Transitioning to college can be an exciting and overwhelming process for many students. Educators and parents know high school students must be academically ready for college. But are they socially, emotionally and financially ready too? Rockland Community College works to ensure that students have the support they need to get ready and to help make the entire college experience as positive as possible.

To help students and their families plan for the next step on their academic paths, Accessibility Services will offer a Transitioning to College Success Seminar on Wednesday, August 15, 2018, in The Ellipse, Technology Center, Room 8180 from 9:00am – 1:00pm.

The Transitioning to College Success Seminar is designed to prepare students for the transition from high school to college and enable them to be self-sustaining, successful college students. This seminar will focus on four key areas: Accessing Campus Resources; Adjusting to College Life-Time Management; Equal Access; and Career Awareness. Understanding the basics of these four content areas is essential to the success of students in the first several weeks of transitioning to college, and the seminar aims to develop skills such as self-advocacy, critical thinking, and resourcefulness.

Students will hear from a student panel about the expectations of higher education and the pitfalls to avoid, followed by sessions on support services and planning for academic success.

For parents and guardians, the workshop will feature a Q&A with the Director of Accessibility Services and Littman Krooks partner, Marion M. Walsh, Esq., who will address a number of important topics, including how to support your child and yourself through the transition, discussions on the differences between services in high school and college, and lessons on nurturing today’s students to become happy and healthy adults.

The Transitioning to College Success Seminar is FREE!  We encourage all students with a documented disability who are just beginning college and seeking more information about the college experience to attend, along with their parents.   The sessions for students and adults will run from 9:00am – 1:00pm. Please arrive before 9:00am to check in.
