Community and Tribal College Visits


​Each month during the academic year, the STEP Academic Advisor visits its 5 partner ​community and tri​bal colleges. During these visits, she hosts an information table, as well as a workshop designed to prepare community and tribal college transfer students for their transition to a four-year institution (which fulfill STEP's two workshop per semester expectation). 

Some of these monthly visits may consist of a student life fair, program event or ​conference, or special event held by the institution in place of, or in addition to, STEP's typical visits outlined above. For example, STEP will have attended different welcome back events, as well as a TRiO event and various ​course meetings by the end of this academic year.

STEP also attends events on CMU's campus (College Days, Transfer Visit Days, MainStage, etc.) designed​ to introduce students to everything CMU has to offer and college fairs throughout the state of Michigan.

*Workshops offered during these visits, as well as others offered at your community/tribal college or another institution/organization, may ​count toward your 2 workshops per semester expectation. Report back the title, date, time, host organization, and 3 things you learned from each workshop you've attended to Kayla Bottrell, STEP Academic Advisor, at to receive credit.

The Student Transition Enrichment Program (STEP) at Central Michigan University is a great place to continue your pursuit of a four-year degree. STEP reaches out to first generation and/or Pell eligible transfer students to help them navigate through the maze of  a four-year institution. The program is sponsored by the State of Michigan, Workforce Development Agency, and King Chavez Parks (KCP) Initiative.​​
