​​​​Welcome Center Staff

The Welcome Center assists first-time SMC students as they transition into college. The Center supports students in a nurturing and welcoming environment. We offer assistance with:

  • applying to SMC
  • choosing and enrolling in classes
  • educational and career planning
  • navigating corsair connect
  • completing orientation
  • understanding financial aid
  • referrals to campus resources
  • and much more!

The Welcome Center sees students on a first-come, first-serve basis. We recommend you come earlier in the day to ensure you can meet with a counselor.
