Service Area Outcomes (SAO) Assessment Plan

SAO Statement(s):
1. At the end of their individual counseling session, students will have learned more about the services, support programs and/or resources to meet, advance, or complete their goals.
2. Students who meet with a counselor will have a better understanding of what is required in order to achieve their academic goals, leading to a successful academic semester and persist to the next semester. (Successful is defined as earning a cumulative GPA of a 2.0 or higher and at least 50% completion of units attempted that semester)
