Academic Advising Academic Advising

Academic Advisors help you develop the skills you need to make sound academic decisions. Through advising, you make connections among your academic interests, your long-term goals, and career opportunities.

Advisors are here to help you quarter by quarter with educational planning, university transfer options, college application processes, and graduation requirements. We offer support while encouraging you to take responsibility for your success.

Advising is available on campus (appointments and drop-ins), by phone, and by email.
