Student Success & Retention Services

Counseling can often provide relief from both the short-term and long-term problems that diminish a person's quality of life. At Ogeechee Technical College, we value each of our students and we understand the importance of a healthy mental balance, as it plays a large factor in what we are able to accomplish in life.

As the Student Success Coach, my goal is to assist students in recognizing their potential and overcome any obstacles that are preventing them from succeeding. I believe that life can get a little bumpy at times, but with a helping hand, we can find our way.

Services offered are individual counseling, group counseling, workshops, or class presentations. Visit us today!


At times, things come up in life that inhibits you from completing your semester successfully; therefore, leading you to make a decision about withdrawing from school. A total Withdrawal Application is only completed if you are interested in withdrawing from all classes for any reason. After your application for withdrawal is submitted, you will be contacted about the nature of your withdrawal and to answer any questions you may have.

Note: Students who withdraw from a course and have attended 60% or less of the course will receive a “W.” Students submitting an application for withdrawal after the last day to withdraw without academic penalty will be issued a “WP” if passing the course or “WF” if failing the course at the time of withdrawal request; however, the student’s academic record is determined on a course-by-course basis.
