"VÍAS HACIA la GRADUACIÓN” at Cumberland County College

We are proud to announce that Cumberland County College is a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI).  Through the Title V grant, CCC has implemented the program “VÍAS HACIA la GRADUACIÓN” (Las Vias).

The initiative of Las Vias is to increase communication, outreach, and advisement support services to our Hispanic students in order to promote steady connection with advisors, strengthen academic performance, and increase potential to graduate.

Students who are part of the program receive:

  • Individualized academic support services – advisement for an Education Success Plan that will guide the path towards graduation
  • Academic and career advisement – guidance on how to navigate through college processes and help with decision making regarding academic programs and career exploration
  • Financial Aid Advisement – assistance with understanding financial aid processes, financial literacy, and scholarship awareness.
  • Transfer services – facilitate graduation processes and transfer counseling
  • Special programs – workshops to enhance student knowledge of campus resources and student leadership opportunities
  • LV Library Loan Program - receive priority for the book loan program (priority is based on need and time of request). Click here to submit your form for a book loan.
