Online Student Services
Advisers are only able to answer general questions by email because of Federal privacy laws. The most effective advising sessions happen face-to-face. If possible, come to campus to meet with your advisor. If that is not possible, you may schedule a phone advising session. You can schedule an appointment by clicking on the “Schedule Adviser Appointment” link in your eSantaFe account (found under the Advisement Tab, then click on Degree Audit).
Phone: 352-395-5503 or contact your adviser directly
Many textbooks have a digital option when selecting the format for the course. Often renting or buying a digital version is cheaper and you can get access to the materials faster. Digital versions of books have added benefits like search options, and the app means anywhere, anytime access and not having to carry heavy books. However, if a digital version is not available, or you prefer a printed copy, you can order online and have the materials mailed to you with added shipping costs.
The Career Resource Center helps you choose career goals, majors, and life directions. They offer a computerized assessment and provide assistance in searching for colleges, scholarships, and potential employers. All on-campus career services are also available to students.
The Counseling Center provides career, academic and personal counseling. Counselors can help you with your academic and career goals by assisting you in developing the skills (e.g., time management, test anxiety management, study skills) needed to obtain these goals.
The Office of Diversity was created to improve the access and educational advancement of underrepresented students. Its programs are designed to foster students’ holistic success.
The Disabilities Resource Center serves as a resource to the college and community on disability related matters. The DRC establishes and delivers reasonable, equitable academic accommodations and services. To receive accommodations in an online class, contact the DRC first.
The Financial Aid office helps you with the FAFSA, student loans, deferments, work-study, scholarships, the SF SmartCard, financial literacy, and more. You can now apply for financial aid online and can see your financial aid information online in eSantaFe.
Even if you can't take advantage of the services available through the Student Health Care Center on campus, they also have information on local healthcare providers to which you can be referred for complex problems.
Information about organizations is now in eConnect. This new system gives virtual connection to more than 60 clubs, organizations, and opportunities to get involved at Santa Fe College. eConnect operates as a social media site with access to contact information, meeting times, and upcoming events. Log in through eSantaFe and create and eConnect user account (top right navigation). You will then be able to select organizations to submit “join requests” for.
You can get help with almost any subject at almost any time of the day or night with the online tutoring service, Smarthinking. You can access the Smarthinking link from the left navigation bar in Canvas or from eSantaFe. There is a Writing Center that will provide comments and advice on your papers, and you can chat with a tutor on a drop-in basis or make an appointment.
