Student Success and Resources
At SFCC, we want to do everything we can to help you succeed in college. Therefore, we offer a variety of Student Resources and Support services to help you get through your studies.
Your personal navigator will help you plan your academic journey, stay on track for graduation and deal with obstacles along the way.
For students who are new to State Fair Community College, your success begins at orientation! Orientation will connect you to campus technology used in SFCC classes, answer questions about topics of concern, and introduce you to resources that will help you successfully progress through your program of study. At orientation, you will also get the opportunity to explore your major/career, as well as interact with the SFCC community!
To register for orientation, sign into mySTAR >>> Student tab >>> Student Success Tools (middle column) >>> Sign up Now! For more information, call the Student Success line at (660) 530-5831 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fall semester orientation is offered July 12, July 26, August 6 and August 16. There are two sessions scheduled each day, morning (8:00 am) and afternoon (1:00 pm). Preregistration is requested.
We provide reasonable accommodations to qualified students with disabilities to make sure you can access the same educational experiences as your peers. Here’s what to do.
It’s all about success! Our Starfish software program makes it easy for you to discover our support services and how to contact them when you have concerns. Your navigator and instructors also can use Starfish to contact you about your academic performance. It’s a powerful tool that can help you finish what you start.
Textbooks on Reserve (coming fall 2019)
This service supports students who are delayed in obtaining general education course textbooks by the time classes start. Go to the Proctor Library checkout desk and ask if the textbook(s) you need are available. You can use the textbook in the library for up to two hours during open hours. This will help you keep up with your assignments until you are able to get the books you need.
No matter what your age, starting college, meeting new people and juggling homework and life can be overwhelming. When that happens, we’re here to help.
Begin with your future in mind. Whether you’re looking for work right now or want the tools to land the perfect job after graduation, we have the resources you need.
If you want to earn a bachelor’s degree, this is a great place to start. We offer terrific programs and instructors—and we work directly with four-year schools in Missouri to make sure your credits will transfer easily. Our motto? “Start here … go there!”
College Transfer Resources
The Proctor Library on the Sedalia campus maintains a supply of free transfer materials from other colleges in a cabinet near the checkout desk. Materials include catalogs and general admission information. Take whatever information you need to help you plan your transfer.
