Emergency Aid and Resources

The Santa Fe College (SF) Emergency Aid Grant is available to assist currently enrolled students who have a sudden, unforeseen financial emergency. The grant is awarded by the SF Foundation to help students overcome temporary financial crises so that they may remain enrolled at SF.  

Counseling and Wellness Center

The Counseling and Wellness Center provides short-term, solution-focused counseling to SF students free of charge, as well as crisis intervention, outreach and consultation. The Counseling and Wellness Center is part of the Trauma Response Team at SF which provides needed comfort to students, faculty, staff and families in times of crisis. Counselors also assist students, faculty and staff identify other services in the college and in the community that may be helpful.

Career Exploration Center

The Santa Fe College Career Exploration Center maintains informational resources to assist students in choosing career goals, majors, colleges and life directions, and to learn the steps that lead toward those goals. We offer computerized assessments of a person’s interests, values, personality and other relevant factors. These are used to suggest career fields that may be worthy of investigation. Our assessments do not attempt to prescribe the "right job" - no program can do that well. Instead they lead to information about oneself and career possibilities to enable better-informed and well-considered career decisions. Assistance in searching for colleges, scholarships, and potential employers is also available. The Career Exploration Center is open to community members as well as SF students, faculty and staff.

Disabilities Resource Center

The DRC provides services to Santa Fe College students with disabilities, so they have an equal opportunity to fully participate in all aspects of SF life. The DRC serves students with a wide array of disabilities and this website provides valuable information for students, parents, faculty and staff related to various responsibilities, services and programs of the office.

Learning Commons

The Learning Commons is an academic resource center located within the Lawrence W. Tyree Library (Building Y) to encourage and support academic success for all students. Currently, the Learning Commons provides free tutoring services for math, but will eventually offer tutoring for all subjects as well as academic coaching to help students develop effective skills and strategies to meet academic and personal objectives. The Learning Commons will work in collaboration with faculty and student support services to provide unique learning opportunities for students in and out of the classroom.
