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!
For more information, call the Student Success line at (660) 530-5831 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fall semester orientation is offered July 17 (8 a.m. to noon or 1-5 p.m.), July 23 (1-5 p.m. or 5:30-8 p.m.), Aug. 6 (8 a.m. to noon or 1-5 p.m.), and Aug. 14 (8 a.m. to noon or 1-5 p.m.) . Preregistration is requested.
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.
Your navigator can assist you with preparing for transfer if you want to earn a bachelor’s degree. We work directly with four-year schools in Missouri to make sure your credits will transfer easily. We host college transfer fairs to introduce you to college transfer representatives who will help you with transfer processes. 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.
Textbooks on Reserve
If you are not able to purchase the textbooks you need for class, we can help you with that! Thanks to a mini-grant from the SFCC Foundation, the Donald Proctor Library has some textbooks on reserve that students can use within the library. Availability may be limited and conditions may apply. See the front desk for details.
