The Office of Student Success provides leadership for a wide variety of programs and services related to student learning and success. It also supports the work of the 16 technical colleges in providing comprehensive, balanced services for a remarkably diverse student population. The work encompasses all support aspects of career pathway development.

This office works with the colleges to develop and implement policies and programs related to student services including admissions, financial aid, job placement, and credit transfer. It also coordinates initiatives to support specific student populations.

The Office of Student Success also coordinates the System’s federal and state grant processes, and administers the federal Carl Perkins Career and Technical Education and Adult Education and Family Literacy Acts. This includes:

  • overseeing the state's Adult Basic Education (ABE) and English Language Learner (ELL) programs, which include basic education, adult secondary education, and workplace basic education;

  • coordinates System activities related to workforce development initiatives and programs involving other state, local and regional partners; and

  • provides leadership and services in the areas of institutional research, performance accountability, and program-level performance evaluation.

The Office of Student Success reports to the WTCS Provost and Vice President.
