University Career Center

The University Career Center (UCC) understands that you have a busy schedule, and as an online student they know it is often not possible for you to come in and meet one-on-one with a career coach. In order to provide you with helpful services, the UCC have developed several online resources to help you with your career development.

You can utilize the UCC's instant chat service for quick questions, or request to have an appointment with a career coach via phone or Skype for Business. You can also review how-to videos created by UCC staff members which you may find helpful.

In addition to several online tools, UCC also offers three online career development courses, as well as an online option for completing the Career Advancement Program (CAP), which will be available starting fall 2015.
