Student Services

Academic Achievement Center

The AAC provides academic support services including learning skills instruction, time management, tutoring, academic counseling/advising, and placement examinations. The AAC is also responsible for academic accommodations provided to students with physical and learning disabilities, including taped texts, note takers, and test-taking options. Individualized help with enrollment is available. This office will act as a liaison with students' instructors. It is recommended that learning-disabled students contact this office prior to enrollment and provide documentation of their learning disability. This will allow any academic accommodations to be made before the semester begins.

The College of Technology and Aviation also has a Student Support Services office and an Upward Bound office through TRIO, a federally funded program to help fulfill the potential of students regardless of gender, race, income level, marital status, or disabilities. TRIO provides personal, academic, and professional assistance to eligible participants while they work to achieve their personal, academic, and professional goals. This assistance includes counseling services, math and writing instruction, resume and interviewing, test accommodations, advocacy, computer lab, peer mentoring, referral services, and cultural enrichment activities.

Office of Student Life

The Office of Student Life provides leadership opportunities and development. Besides overseeing the Student Governing Association, as well as many clubs and activities, the Office of Student Life provides classes in leadership development.

Office of Career Services

The Office of Career Services provides assistance in job placement and provides counseling in choosing a career, developing a resume, and practicing interview techniques. Career Services coordinates interviews with employers seeking job applicants and coordinates the campus' career fair each spring.

K-State at Salina Library

The library, located in the Technology Center, meets standards set for college libraries by the American Library Association and TAC of ABET. The library contains more than 20,000 volumes and provides access to nearly 90 online databases, as well as a collection of up-to-date technical information and reference materials (paper and electronic) covering technological subjects.

Continuing Education

The Division of Continuing Education offers workshops, seminars, and short-term and full-term courses in the fields of technology. Special courses can be designed to meet the needs of individuals, groups, and organizations. These services can be provided on campus, in-plant, or in communities where technical services are needed but not readily available. Continuing education units may be granted in appropriate cases.
