The following plans are available
Plan I: Access to the University Career Advisory Network for contacting professionals, workshops, special events, career fairs, handouts, UCS library and UCS computer lab, FREE. All alumni automatically have this plan option.

This fee covers up to three (one-hour) counseling sessions. Additional career counseling is available for $25 per session. Myers-Briggs and Strong Interest Inventory (vocational assessments) incur a $20 fee for downloading/printing results.
