Student Success

The Patriot Student Success team is here to guide students through their time at Cumberlands.

Meet your Success Coordinator

The Patriot Student Success team helps all students in their transition to college and especially during their first year at Cumberlands. Student Success Coordinators serve as academic advisors for students during their first year and provide resources to help students be successful. Student Success Coordinators are assigned before incoming students come to campus and serve as the first point of contact for any questions students have about their courses or campus life in general. Incoming students will receive an email over the summer to introduce them to their Student Success Coordinator and schedule a time to connect. There are three key areas of focus for the Student Success team, including summer orientation, student academic resources and academic advising. 

Our new Patriot Success Program takes the college experience and breaks it up into achievable milestones that are surrounded by targeted academic support designed to help students succeed. From a customized course schedule, to targeted communication about success strategies, Patriot Success students work one on one with a Student Success Coordinator to identify a course path and the requirements needed to complete both an associates and bachelors degree during their time at Cumberlands.
