Database of the Week

Need help with choosing a major or which college to transfer to for your next degree or certificate, the SWC Library provides access to a database section that helps you learn about which decision to make!

The “Plan Your Education” section is found in Ferguson’s Career Guidance Center database. You can access it by going to the SWC Library’s Articles Databases page. Look for the Education and Career section box and click on the link to the Ferguson's Career Guidance Center.

If you’re off-campus, you will need to use your WebAdvisor username [first initial of your first and last names, 0 (zero) and your six digit student ID number, like aa012345] and password before accessing this database.

You will then find the “Plan Your Education” section on the database’s homepage. Choosing a College Major or Choosing a College are available as articles that you can choose to print, email or download.

Let the SWC Library help you discover your next educational goal.
