Meet with your Academic Advisor for assistance with:

  • Building an educational plan
  • Planning a course of study
  • Understanding assessment scores and course placement
  • Reviewing unofficial transcripts
  • Choose the right classes for your journey
  • Planning for graduation
  • Choosing courses for transfer to another institution
  • Locating and exploring education web resources

Advisement is a vital support for all students, and it’s a requirement for new-to-college students. This includes those enrolling full-time or part-time, and students seeking a degree or transfer.
