The staff will administer various types of financial aid available to the institution. An informal placement service is also available to students through the Counseling Center. In addition, appropriate personnel will plan and supervise student activities and provide for emergency services. The staff will also coordinate and/or administer appropriate tests to current and prospective students. The college will accept ASSET, ACT, SAT, and COMPASS scores for admission.
