Student Affairs


The mission of Student Affairs is to pave the way for our diverse community to achieve success through guidance, care, and collaboration.

 We encompass a multitude of resources for students, from assistance with registration and financial aid to one-on-one advisement for course selection and personal support. We also provide an array of co-curricular learning opportunities to all students so that they can be successful and resilient both inside and outside the classroom. Our goal is to better prepare students for their roles in their own family, vocation, and community.

The Student Affairs team and the entire PWSC faculty and staff truly want to see you succeed. Please feel free to call upon us—there are available services and supports that you may not realize are available to you.
