Frequently Asked Questions
"Will I have help from the college? "
At Clayton College each student is assigned a faculty advisor whose role is to facilitate the student's learning process. This is accomplished by: providing support and assistance in learning the materials that they receive; helping ensure timely completion of the course or program; responding quickly to student inquiries; and being available by phone, fax or e-mail five days a week during normal business hours.
In distance education the objective is to learn from materials provided, looking to the advisor as a coach, not an information delivery system. No tutor or advisor can assure that any student will learn the material; only the student can make this happen.
"How can I get to know other students? "
As in any educational endeavor, networking with others is a critical part of the learning process. The Holistic Connection is the college's social hub. Here is where the bulletin boards are located and where weekly chats with faculty are conducted. Students and graduates also use the chat rooms for their own meetings, as the chat rooms are available 24/7. Clayton College often attends health shows and conferences, providing students and others with opportunities for personal interaction with us.
