Student Success Center
The Student Success Center (SSC) is committed to the Fletcher mission to prepare individuals for employment, career advancement and lifelong learning by providing a physical and virtual place on campus to assist students in seeking excellence in all facets of life, identifying and addressing areas of growth, and providing resources and tools to encourage development in all areas of personal and academic success.
Located in the Atrium area of the Schriever Campus, the SSC houses accommodated testing, advising, counseling, testing and tutoring services for all Fletcher students. Its focus is assisting students to successfully meet their academic goals while preparing them for transfer or the workforce.
The SSC houses three Success Coaches and the Director of Retention Services who all assist students with the following regarding their academic journey:
- Academic advising
The Success Coaches are impassioned, well-trained, knowledgeable professionals who are eager to assist students in whatever academic and/or career path they choose. The team does so via face-to-face walk-in visits and appointments, email, and phone meeting students’ needs in whatever manner necessary. Approximately 3 weeks into each semester, students are assigned a Success Coach or Faculty Advisor. Appointments with Success Coaches can be made through ACCUDEMIA except at designated Advising and Registration times during which all students are seen on a walk-in basis. Appointments can be booked from any computer or mobile device using ACCUDEMIA. Go to www.fletcher.edu/Falconnet/ and click on ACCUDEMIA.
A caring Licensed Professional Counselor is available for students, faculty and staff of the college. Students can make an appointment for counseling by visiting the Student Success Center or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
