Student Resources

 

Your Needs. Met. 

Fox College strives to provide our students with the tools they need to succeed. We take a personal approach in providing each and all of our services, beginning with the first admissions visit through to our career placement services. 

Some of our student-focused resources include:

Admissions:  You’ll be paired with an admissions representative who will work closely with you throughout the admissions process

Education Department:  The Education Department’s goal is for every student to succeed academically. In addition to teaching resources and support for extra help, academic advising is readily available and staff can direct students to a variety of on and off campus resources.

Financial Aid:   The Financial Aid staff is involved with students beginning in admissions and continuing through to graduation.

Career Services: Our proactive career placement services staff helps students before and after graduation with resumes, interviewing skills, locating job opportunities, arranging interviews, and assisting in salary negotiations.

Activities:  Activities vary each year, but students may work together on fundraising initiatives, attend field trips related to their programs of study, and have a variety of celebrations. 

Disability Support Services:  Fox College is committed to providing equal access to the college’s academic programs and services to qualified individuals with disabilities through reasonable accommodation. Students who believe they are in need of accommodations should contact the designated Section 504 coordinator, who is the Director of Education identified in the Administration, Faculty, and Staff section of this catalog, by phone at (708) 444-4500 or by mail or in person at 6640 South Cicero Avenue, Bedford Park, IL 60638. The student should provide the designated Section 504 coordinator with a current comprehensive evaluation of a specific disability from a qualified diagnostician that identifies the type of disability and lists recommended accommodations. All documentation will be reviewed by the designated Section 504 coordinator in a timely manner, and appropriate reasonable accommodations will be provided based on the individual student’s needs.

Confidential Advisor Services

Fox College does not employ any campus-based professional, licensed counselors who are not required to report information about criminal offenses about which they are informed. However, Fox College has partnered with Resilience to serve as confidential advisors to survivors of sexual violence at each campus. All communications between a confidential Resilience advisor and a survivor pertaining to an incident of sexual violence shall remain confidential, unless the survivor consents to the disclosure of the communication in writing or unless failure to disclose would result in a clear, imminent risk of serious physical injury to or death of the survivor or another person. Communications include all records kept by the confidential advisor in the course of providing the survivor with services related to the incident of sexual violence. 

Any student who has experienced sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking while enrolled at Fox College may utilize Confidential Advisor Services provided by Resilience at any time. To reach Resilience, please call their 24-hour message center* at 773-907-1062. Please note that this is a message center and that you will need to ask that they page Resilience. Upon receiving a request for Resilience support, the message center will page the Resilience Advocate on call. After being paged, a Confidential Advisor from Resilience will respond to the request for support over the phone within 15 minutes. Students will need to provide a number for the Confidential Advisor to call them back; if they are not comfortable providing a number, they can ask to be placed on hold while a Resilience Advocate is reached. 

*The Resilience Message Center is run by Swedish Covenant Hospital, a separate entity from Resilience. No student is required to provide any information to the message center other than they would like Resilience to be paged.
