Students with children and family members requiring care

For students with children or students who have to care for a close family member, it is particularly important to have certainty in terms of curriculum planning as early as possible. Priority Check-In (PCI) is a service offered by General Student Counseling and the Center for Knowledge Management that is aimed at giving these groups of students better security in their plans. After providing proof of need to the ZSB, students can view the study plan prior to publication of the groups. They can then sign up for a specific group that is most convenient for them in terms of time, giving them the flexibility they need to plan their care.

If you would like to take advantage of this offer or have questions, feel free to contact General Student Counseling.
