The Career Planning Program (CPP) was created to assist individuals who are undecided about a major or career and or those wishing to make a career change.

The CPP consists of two on-line career assessments, handouts, a career group meeting (listed below), and individual session(s) with a Career Counselor to develop an action plan. There is a fee of $33 to cover the cost of the assessments.
