Academic Advising

In adapting to the impact of COVID-19, we have adjusted the way we advise. Your advisor is still available. Please follow the instructions below if you have an assigned advisor. All advising is currently happening over the phone or virtually through Zoom. If you do not have an assigned academic advisor, please email and we will connect you to an advisor remotely.

Assigned Advisor

When you enroll in courses for the first time at TCC and have a declared major, you are assigned an academic advisor that will work with you to ensure you meet your goals. If you haven't enrolled for the first time, you can visit any academic advising office during walk-in hours.

To meet with your assigned advisor, follow the directions below:

  1. Log into and click Starfish in the Quick Links box.

  2. Click on your advisor’s name under Your Connections.

  3. Click Schedule Appointment

  4. Choose the reason for the appointment, adjust the date range as needed to find days and times that work for your schedule, then select a time from the list. Also choose phone or virtual advising. Virtual advising will be through zoom. You can do a Zoom meeting on your phone or computer with no software required. 

  5. Add details about the reason for the visit in the text box and click Confirm to finalize your appointment.

Mission Statement

Academic Advising engages students in exploring, defining, and achieving their academic and career goals.

Advising Purpose

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.

Advising Requirements

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.

Student Learning Outcomes

  • Students will identify fields of study that are consistent with interests, abilities, and life goals.
  • Students will develop a meaningful education plan in collaboration with an academic advisor.
  • Students will implement and follow through with their education plan through completion.
  • Students will access appropriate support services to accommodate unique needs.

Advisor Responsibilities

  • Ensure that students experience knowledgeable advisors that demonstrate care and respect.
  • Collaborate with students to develop and implement academic plans and educational experiences that reflect individual ability and interest.
  • Teach students to utilize resources available to achieve their goal - whether it be degree completion, transfer and/or transition to employment, or personal enrichment - so they can maximize their individual potential.
