Academic Advising assists students with setting educational goals, planning how to achieve the goals, and making informed decisions on matters related to academic success.
The Advisor is a source of information about institutional policies, procedures and programs, and helps students use College resources for integrating academic pursuits with personal and vocational goals.
It is best to meet with advisors well before course registration periods so that adequate time and attention can be devoted to student concerns, apart from the urgency of registration itself. Advisors are prepared to assist students in considering career choices, transfer of courses, selection of transfer colleges, major requirements, and course choices.
For enrolled degree-seeking students, Advisor approval is required in order to register for fall and spring courses.
Students are encouraged to seek advising from Faculty Advisors in their academic field of study. In October and March of each semester, enrolled students will be assigned to a faculty advisor. Students are asking to connect with their advisor during the fall or spring semester in order to discuss course progress,
In order to prepare for the advising discussion, students should become familiar with required courses for their program of study and prepare a trial schedule of classes for the upcoming semesters.
