Our Student Ambassadors
COM has selected a team of talented student leaders to serve in the Student Ambassador Program for the 2015-2016 academic year.
Student ambassadors serve as liaisons between the College and local schools, lead campus tours and assist with on-campus activities such as Saturday Services, International Students Orientation, Job Fair, Transfer Day, Peer Summit, and other events. Ambassadors also represent COM at local College Fairs, community events, and off-site school visits. The team has developed a hands-on, interactive college bound curriculum which we use in local elementary and middle schools to support their college preparation and awareness initiatives. Our Ambassadors have their own amazing stories of college access and success. They provide an authentic student voice and perspective and are extremely effective communicators.
For Prospective Students
High school students who are interested in a jumpstart on college level courses can enroll at no cost at the College of Marin through our College Credit Program. High school students gain valuable experience in their classes and earn college credit (most courses transfer to 4-year institutions, e.g., UC, CSU and private colleges) and meet Bachelor degree requirements. If you are interested in exploring different areas of study to help determine your college major, you can enroll in college courses to test your interests. A robust sequence of late afternoon classes is conveniently scheduled to provide opportunities for high school students. It is an efficient and strategic approach for college preparation, and can save you time and money in the long run.
For Parents and Guardians
Your role in the college planning process is crucial. We are here to help support you and your student in this important process through Information Nights sponsored at local schools, community-wide college access forums, information posted on our website, campus tours, and direct contact. We can help you understand the financial implications of your student's choice of colleges in terms of your own family's finances. By becoming familiar with the various options available to your student, from concurrent enrollment at no cost while your student is still in high school, to the higher education system in California (consisting of the community colleges, California State Universities, University of California system, and private universities), to the various forms of financial aid and scholarships and other support services, you will be able to lend a helpful and informed voice that will result in a more thoughtful decision for your student and your family.
Please let us know how we can support your students, whether at your site or on our campuses. We will work with you to develop a tailored approach that will supplement your efforts and can provide materials for use in your office. You can contact us either by email, Anna.Pilloton@marin.edu, or by calling our office: 415.485.9663.
