Student Success Facilitators

They can connect you to college resources, provide learning and study strategies and assist you with obtaining a Peer Tutor for complex courses.
While the college experience can be exciting, Counselling Services understands that it can also be stressful. If you find yourself overwhelmed with academic, personal, or financial concerns, our counsellors are here to assist you. Confidential personal counselling is available to all St. Lawrence College students. Our primary goals are to support students during difficult times, and the promotion of student wellness.
Educational support services are available for students with physical, learning, and mental health disabilities. Students are encouraged to contact Counselling and AccessAbility Services for information and/or a confidential intake interview as soon as possible. Our services provide access and support to eligible students who require academic accommodations, adaptive technology, learning strategies, referrals, information about bursaries for students with disabilities, tuition subsidies, and more.
Peer Tutoring may be of benefit to students who are experiencing difficulty in a course.
