The Student Resource Center at Cox College welcomes you.

The Student Resource Center at Cox College provides support for students in academics and personal and social development. The Center aids students in developing transition-to-college foundations such as study strategies, note-taking tips, test taking proficiencies, time management skills, learning styles assessments, and relaxation techniques, as well as providing guidance in dealing with stress, anxiety, and personal concerns. All students are encouraged to use the support services available through the Center and students may suggest additional ideas or make comments via a suggestion box.

The Student Resource Center’s goal is to encourage success strategies for college and for life. Workshops and seminars on textbook reading, all stages of writing research papers and reports, and APA style may be offered each semester. An introductory course, CCPL 100-Promoting Learning and Ultimate Success, provides incoming students with the opportunity to become familiar with the campus and to develop their learning skills.

During the renovation, the Student Resource Center is located in the former library just off the J200 hallway.

Welcome to the Disability Support Services (DSS) Office at Cox College.

In support of the college’s mission, vision and core values, the Disability Support Services Office commits to collaborating with faculty, staff, students, and the community to encourage a college environment in which individuals are viewed on the basis of ability, not disability.

We are thrilled you have chosen to pursue your educational goals at Cox College, and we look forward to serving and supporting you in your endeavors.

The Disability Support Services Office personnel continue to be available remotely by phone, email, or Zoom online videoconferencing as well.

Pregnant and Parenting students have certain protections under Title IX. (For our purposes, “parenting” students are those with newborn children. Qualifying circumstances may allow for extended support when deemed medically necessary.) Title IX coverage extends to pregnant students and new mothers because pregnancy is a phenomenon only experienced by women.

If you are a student, or know a student, who you believe falls under Title IX Pregnant and Parenting protection, please email Dr. Raquel Morrow at for assistance.
