Sea Change Grant Targeted Advising
The goal of the Targeted Advising program is to provide distance students the same level of support and guidance that is offered to on-campus students at Kodiak College. Using a variety of technologies and student assessments, the Targeted Advising program seeks to collect comprehensive information about distance students to help them in their selection of programs/courses and to connect them with an advisor.
To better serve distance students, Kodiak College created a new and improved website, ensuring that students have access to everything they need through an intuitive online format. With Targeted Advising in mind, the website now features an easy way for students to email the Student Services department, in addition to online chat and Skype opportunities.
The Targeted Advising program was developed in Year 1, piloted in Year 2, and is being maintained throughout Years 3-5.
