Center for Achievement and Transition Services
In providing resources and support for academic success, the Center for Achievement and Transition Services (CATS) cultivates engagement in learning, investment in career goals, and persistence in college. In the centrally located CATS building, Peru State students enjoy no-cost access to a full complement of academic support services, such as workshops, tutoring, counseling, testing services, career services, academic guidance, campus information, leadership opportunities, and disability accommodations. With its lounge area, tutoring labs, computer labs, open study areas, quiet study rooms, and direct access to the library, the Center is the perfect place to study between classes. The Center’s facilities and dedicated staff members are great resources for enriching your academic experience.
Students sometimes feel the need to seek assistance in dealing with issues whether they are personal, vocational, educational, or social. Licensed Student Counselors are on staff on the second floor of the Center for Achievement and Transition Studies during regular workweek hours. The counselor’s services are available to all Peru State students at no charge. Appointments are made by the counselor, and drop-ins are welcome when the counselor is not already in session. Distance learners may request counseling via telephone or Skype. To contact the counselor for an appointment, students can call 402-872-2425.
All students and alumni are advised that the Peru State Marketing and Communications Office takes photographs and videos of students throughout the year. These photographs and videos often depict students in classrooms, study areas, residence halls, and at athletic events and Peru State related activities. Peru State reserves the right to use these photographs and videos as a part of its publicity and marketing efforts. Students who enroll at Peru State do so with the understanding that these photographs and videos might include their names, pictures, and voices. Such photographs or videos might be included, published or used in Peru State publications, including print, broadcast or electronic media, for publicity, commercial or marketing purposes. Enrollment at Peru State constitutes students’ consent to the inclusion, publication or use of their names, pictures, and voices in Peru State publications, both printed and electronic, without compensation.
News releases about Peru State students (including but not limited to scholarship notices, academic honors, athletic distinctions, etc.), and in some cases photographs, will be submitted by the Peru State Marketing and Communications Department to appropriate media outlets based on a student’s permanent address. Students must specify at the time of registration if they do not wish to participate.
