CSM COLLEGE SURVIVAL GUIDE

The College Survival Guide is a recurring feature that directs members of the CSM community to free resources and support for whatever challenges they may be facing. At CSM, no hawk has to fly alone. 

NEED AN ACCOMMODATION FOR A DISABILITY? Disability Support Services is here to ensure equitable access to education for all of our students. DSS assistance isn’t limited to physical or “obvious” disabilities, either; students living with “invisible disabilities” like dyslexia or ADHD can also get the support they need.
