MENTORING PROGRAM

The College offers a mentor to students to enhance their student experience while attending DACC and to increase student success. Mentors will meet with and communicate with their mentee throughout the academic year. It is important for each student to have a “go to” person to make them feel welcome and help them learn how to navigate college, inside and outside the classroom. Students who are first-time, full-time, degree and certificate seeking students are assigned a mentor automatically. All other students are welcome to join the program too. For more information contact our Student Success Advocate, Erika Harris, at eharris@dacc.edu or at 217-443-8810.

ONLINE STUDENT SERVICES - JAGUAR SPOT

Current students and alumni can view their student accounts and records online. Visit the Jaguar Spot, our portal to our online student services, at www.dacc.edu/jaguarspot/. Currently, students may access their online records through WebAdvisor or our New Self Service. Over the next year, we will be moving all online functions for students to the New Self Service. It is very mobile and student friendly! Information on these portals includes financial aid updates, bill statements, class schedule, placement test scores, unofficial academic transcript, grades, and much more. Services include online registration, adding/dropping classes, paying DACC tuition and fees, and requesting transcripts or enrollment verifications to be sent to a third party. Instructions on how to use the Jaguar Spot are reviewed in the New Student Orientation (on campus or online) or printed instructions can be found at the Admissions Office. Students are responsible for retrieving/viewing their semester schedules, bill statements, and grades through our online student services.
