Campus Assessment Response Evaluation (CARE Team)
The Campus Assessment, Response, and Evaluation (CARE) Team serves the campus community by assessing and addressing a wide variety of personal and academic issues that can sometimes be barriers to students’ success. Faculty, staff, and students may request the CARE Team's help for themselves or others by completing the CARE Team form. All requests will be kept confidential. After assessing the request, the CARE Team will contact the student of concern to discuss one or more appropriate forms of support to ensure academic success. Students may also request help specifically for any matter stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic that is interferring with their academic success.

Disability Services/ADA Policy
WSCC assists students with disabilities through accommodations, consultation, and advocacy. Disability Access Services (DAS) assesses students’ needs and determines if their particular disability merits an academic accommodation.
If an accommodation in the classroom is deemed appropriate, students will bring an accommodation form to the instructor. It will outline the type of accommodation to be made. To protect the rights of students with and without disabilities, faculty will only provide accommodations when in receipt of this official notice.
If you have questions about DAS, contact the Director of Student Access and Resources, Julie Dill, at (231) 843-5942, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit her in the Student Services suite of the Schoenherr Campus Center.
The library is open 8 AM – 7:30 PM Monday through Thursday and 8 AM – 4:30 PM Friday during the semester. Most in-person services are available at a distance or virtually, including

This is a virtual safe place where you can talk anonymously about anything such as mental health, depression, self-harm, eating disorders, a bad break-up, a relationship, academic stress—it doesn’t matter. If you want to talk about it, someone else does too. No judgments. No bullying. Just people who get you. How to Download & Use Talk Campus.pdf

Internet Access for Canvas and Email
If you don’t have access to the internet at home, there are many computers and printers on campus that students can use for free. Canvas is the online platform where your courses will be delivered. In Canvas, you will be able to see various assignments, PowerPoint lecture slides, and other resources. Access Canvas from the WSCC home page by hovering over Quick Links, then clicking on Canvas. If you have not logged into your account before, you will need to utilize the Password Management page. You will then be prompted for your WSCC user name and password. Unless you’ve changed it, your user name for Canvas and email is your first initial and your last name (such as tjones for Tom Jones). Your initial password is mmddxxxxW% (where mm=your birth month, dd=your birth day, xxxx=last 4 digits of your SS#, and W% are these two characters at the end). You can change your password after you log in for the first time—hit Ctrl-Alt-Del to see options. If you have trouble logging in, contact the WSCC help desk at 231-843-5570.
All testing appointments must be scheduled ahead of time by calling (231) 843-5528. Unfortunately, walk-ins are not possible during the pandemic due to limited capacity. (When pandemic constraints are lifted, policies will be revisited and communicated to the campus.) During the Fall and Winter semesters, the Testing Center is open weekdays with varying hours of availability. College holidays and closures are observed. You will be required to provide a photo ID with your first and last name before testing.

The Writing Center is a free on-campus resource for students. Students can (and should) use the Writing Center no matter their level of confidence with writing and at any point in the writing process (the earlier, the better). Sessions will primarily be held via Zoom video conferencing on both an appointment and drop-in basis. Students may also share their essays with Writing Center coaches and utilize the “chat” feature in Google Docs. Although the Center primarily operates online, face-to-face assistance is also available on a more limited basis in Room 754, on the 2nd floor of the Schoenherr Campus Center. Face-to-face appointments require setting up an appointment in advance. To schedule an appointment for either a Zoom or face-to-face session, please visit the Writing Center's scheduling page.
