Reading Time: 3 minutes

Students who access our services earlier in the semester tend to be more successful.

Helping to make sure students are aware of services early in the semester, and with friendly reminders throughout the term, can help to provide early intervention and avoid problems at crunch time.

To try to make this as simple as possible, Student Success Services has created a collection of digital postcards that faculty can use to help connect students to online opportunities for help.

Below, find the downloadable postcards. Choose the services you would like to highlight to your class, download the appropriate image, and use the image in your announcements, presentations, or emails.

Refer a Student for Support

Student Success Advisors are here to help navigate college services and find the supports and tools that will work best for learners. They can help book appointments with wellness and learning services, and can assist students in working through college processes or problems. 

Asking for support is easy – students can use the online self-referral form and an advisor will reach out to set-up a time to talk.   Alternatively, if you develop a particular concern consider submitting a request on a student’s behalf through the Faculty Student Referral Form.

Either form is received by Conestoga’s Student Success Advisors, who are able to help evaluate student needs and make direct referrals to and appointments with support services.
