Students

New and prospective students are encouraged to attend orientation to get an idea of what will be expected as a college student. There is also a counseling center for its students. This department offers different forms of counseling to ensure success for the student. Appointments generally have to be made to see a counselor; however, there are times when the counseling department will allow walk-ins. The purpose of the counseling is to assist students in staying on course in order to reach their educational goals. Matriculation, SEP (Student Educational Plan), and academic probation are a few areas that the counseling department addresses on a regular basis.

Assessments are a common practice at Cosumnes. The college recognizes students are on different levels academically. The assessments are given to students to place them in courses that will promote success, based on their individual need.

The SEP or Student Educational Plan is also a common practice. The college recommends that each student have an educational plan on file. The educational plan is another route to ensure academic success.
