Higher Education Support
Connect with Higher Education Support Specialists for help with academic, financial, and personal issues during college.
Higher Education Support Specialists
Higher Education Support Specialists work with recent MHS graduates as they pursue postsecondary education. Through regular communication and visits to the graduates’ college campuses, they provide academic, financial, and personal advisement.
The specialists also work closely with CES staff and partners with postsecondary institutions to promote graduates’ educational success.
At the end of each term the Higher Education Support Specialists review all students’ college transcripts to ensure CES standards and progress towards degree completion.
