Office of Multicultural Affairs


Academic Advising

We help students meet their educational requirements for graduation, transfer to a four year college or university, or obtaining training for a career. Chesapeake College participates in ARTSYS, a computerized data information system that helps ease the transfer of students from Maryland community colleges to all institutions within the University of Maryland system.

Academic Support Services

We provide referrals to support services such as the Writing Center, Academic Computer Lab, Academic Support Center and Student Support Services to insure that each student is a success at Chesapeake College! Special accommodations will be made for physically handicapped and learning disabled students. All Chesapeake College students may access all of the services mentioned free of charge.

Community Outreach

We offer college workshops at area schools, community centers and churches to discuss educational opportunities. The college's Multicultural Advisory Committee sponsors programs that enhance cultural diversity on the Mid-Shore.

College Preview Days

During the academic year the Office of Multicultural Affairs promotes two college preview days to two high schools from the five surrounding counties.�� High school students who are interested in attending will have the opportunity to fill out an admission application as well as hear presentations from the Director of Multicultural Affairs about the services rendered to students. The Director of First Year Programs and the Director of Student Life also present information about ways to ensure academic success. Finally, students are given a campus tour.

High School Outreach:

The Office of Multicultural Affairs offers twice a year the opportunity to speak with seniors and juniors at the area high schools on Chesapeake College's admission process. Keep looking to see when Chesapeake College is coming to your high school and we will see you then!
