Career and Technical Education (CTE) Support Services provides members of special populations equal access to recruitment, enrollment and placement activities, and to the full range of educational programs available. These programs include CTE specific programs of study, and comprehensive career guidance and counseling services. No one shall be discriminated against on the basis of his/her status as a member of a special population.

The CTE Support Services Office strives to encourage independence, to assist students in realizing their academic potential, and to facilitate the elimination of physical, programmatic, and attitudinal barriers.

Students are considered part of a special population if:
• They are economically disadvantaged
• They are educationally disadvantaged
• They are a displaced homemaker
• They are a single parent
• They are preparing for non-traditional training and employment
• They have limited English proficiency

Self-identification is voluntary. However, the CTE Support Services Office can be of service to students only to the extent that their individual needs are made known. Students and prospective students are encouraged to make an early contact with the CTE Support Services Office.
Services for single parents and displaced homemakers include counseling, advocacy support, community referrals and networking with agencies. Some students may qualify to participate in a book loan service.
