The Student Services Director provides support and counseling to the UCHA learner and assists in their successful completion of the program. A list of tutors for students having academic challenges is offered by Student Services. Students may hire these tutors anytime at their own expense. The Student Service Director also supervises the college library. The UCHA library has grown into a vast resource of valuable information. The UCHA learner is encouraged to take advantage of this resource. The Student Service Director is available to answer questions and assist the student learner with these resources. Student Services is also responsible for coordinating placement services.
"I'm proud to say I'm a graduate of UCHA where they care about you even after you graduate. May you 'live long and prosper'" — George Cwack.
Through many of the courses, students will have several opportunities to "network" with current practitioners in various ways: site visits, guest presenters, mentoring opportunities, externship experiences, etc. These contacts will help students pursue career possibilities even before they graduate.
Graduates inform the school about business opportunities that interest them, and the school informs them about business opportunities in their area of interest. Graduates may make arrangements to consult with past instructors about their business plans. Periodic alumni gatherings provide ongoing support and assistance.
Alumni receive periodic mailings from Student Services. UCHA is often advised of job opportunities within and outside the community. The openings are posted online, for those who have graduated from UCHA only. One of the primary functions of the Student Services Director is to be available as the contact person for job opportunities and to advise the students and graduates accordingly. While completion of the UCHA program does not guarantee job placement, the College, and its faculty will maintain a presence in the community and comprise a list of positions and employers for its graduates. It’s interesting to note, that many of UCHA learners who participate in the community/externship program maintain that position after graduation. This is a unique opportunity where the student is able to develop a site in his or her own community to provide massage therapy. Many students have developed such opportunities at spas, chiropractic offices, hospitals, medical doctor offices, nursing homes, and massage therapy clinics.
