Student Success Services

Services for Student Success

Your success is Lakeland’s success; we take a personal stake in it. So we’re here to provide all the support you might need, in the classroom and outside of it --- everything from job referrals to tutoring to personal counseling. All the resources below are available free to all students.

If you're looking for a particular service, a good place to start is at the Student Services office on each campus. This central office houses some of the services as well as being a great starting place if you're looking for help.
Academic Advising
All students can get academic advice.

Academic advisors are available for university transfer and business students on the Lloydminster Campus. These academic advisors provide transfer information and assist students with course selection and changes.

Pre-registration sessions about the university transfer program are being offered starting in January.

Students in other programs will meet, as necessary, with their assigned program heads or department chairs.
