My name is Robin Behbood and I am an Academic Advisor for the Personal and Professional Learning Program. Each day I look forward to meeting with students with a variety of different backgrounds and life experiences. My role is to partner with students in setting both short-term and long-term goals, so they feel they have a support system at the college. It is my pleasure to help students select classes that fit into their daily schedule, assist with the process of transitioning into the credit program and provide resources to explore new job and career possibilities.
With a variety of new classes and certificates being added each semester, it is very exciting to watch all of our students grow and progress. I encourage all students to schedule an appointment with me to discuss how our Free classes can enhance their personal and professional lives.

Once I submit my application online, what do I do?
Students who submit his/her application online using CCC Apply will receive a Welcome email from the College containing a 7 digit student ID number. Students can use this number to create their My Canyons account, which allows them to search and register for classes online.
