Carl Sandburg Student Success Guide


Welcome to Carl Sandburg College.

We understand that attending college can be intimidating for many students, which is why we created this Student Success Planner specifically with you in mind. We wanted to provide you with a resource where you can find the most important information to help you be successful here at Sandburg. 

When is my tuition due? Does it cost anything to use the Fitness Center? How do I check out books from the Library? The answer to those questions - and many more - can be found in this Student Success Planner. Using this will not only help you become more familiar with the College and comfortable during your time here but also provide tips to help you achieve the ultimate objective of obtaining a certificate or degree from Sandburg.

If there’s a question you have that can’t be answered here, we want you to know that the members of our College faculty, staff and administration are here to help you as well. Our mission is to help you succeed in whatever way possible.

Lastly, we encourage you to be involved as much as possible on campus, whether it be through one of our several clubs or organizations or taking part in the many student life activities available to you. Being an active member of the Sandburg student body will only enhance your college experience!

College President Seamus Reilly

Best wishes for a successful and productive year!
