The Student Success and Career Services Center (“The Center”), is a great resource for you to start your college career right! We offer the means to not only have you start your journey on the right foot, but to also help you succeed as you endeavor along your entire career here at the University of Valley Forge. You deserve the chance to succeed in college and The Center makes it a priority to ensure that you are provided with the proper tools to do just that. We accomplish this by trying to identify the academic or personal struggles you might have and reach out and come along side and assist in improving your academic progress and personal goal building. This gives the opportunity to make improvements that will contribute to your overall success.

The Center provides one-on-one interaction with students like you to help provide a smooth transition from high school to college and help you get acclimated to campus. We are actively involved in various activities around campus to get to know you as a student. In addition, we offer great coffee, fellowship and a place of solace. Our doors are open to all students who seek help.
