Academic Advising engages students in exploring, defining, and achieving their academic and career goals.
Academic advising is central and plays a significant role in the process of educating students for success. Academic Advisors assist students with course selection, clarification of career and major, and with creating a success plan. The advisor-student relationship is dependent upon effective communication and exchange of information between the student and their advisor. The goal of Academic Advising is to educate the whole student and teach them the knowledge of academic planning, their responsibilities, and the college expectations required for their success.
All first-time college students seeking a degree or certificate are required to see an advisor to determine their career and educational goals. During these sessions, an advising curriculum is followed which incorporates Appreciative Advising and includes a checklist of items based upon the student’s education level and standing. In addition to degree and certificate-seeking students, those who have the following status: Academic Notice, Probation or Suspension and Financial Aid Warning, Probation or Suspension, are required to see an advisor prior enrollment to discuss their academic progress. Transfer and returning students are strongly recommended to see an Advisor. It is the responsibility of the student to seek assistance and engage in the advising process.
