Carrington College Announces New Support Program for Students

A strong support system has numerous psychological and emotional benefits, from increased self-esteem to lowered blood pressure. Support systems can help students alleviate mental distress and increase their ability to cope with stressful situations. Simply having access to a strong support system has an impact on your overall health, but when you’re on the path to earning your degree, your ability to cope with stress and keep yourself healthy is more important than ever.

That is why Carrington College is proud to announce the new ACI Specialty Benefits program. The program was set up as a support system for the external issues that impact a student’s ability to succeed in achieving their educational goals at Carrington College. The program is for students as well as their family members and is available to all Carrington College students at no cost, including those who are learning online. They can access it by calling 1-800-977-7728 or going directly to an online portal.
