Academic Advising

"Academic Advising is an educational process that, by intention and design, facilitates students' understanding of the meaning and purpose of higher education and fosters their intellectual and personal development toward academic success and lifelong learning"--National Academic Advising Association, 2004. Academic counseling is an important way for you to obtain information about the college programs, services, and resources that are available for you. Through advising, you will receive the help in decision making and problem solving. Counselors assist students in planning their program of study and in selecting courses. They provide important information about course placement, prerequisites, course sequence, and registration and transfer information. By meeting with your academic advisor regularly and often, you will be able to figure out what is needed to make the best out of your academic journey, create a plan so that you can graduate on time, and navigate through the system to learn what is needed to transform your dreams into reality. Advisors and students share equally in the work of advising, from researching answers to creating academic plans. To get started, find out who your academic advisors are and how you can reach them from the Counseling & Advising Directory. Appointments are 30 and 60 minutes and compared to the Express Advising (Wikiwiki Advising), you will have more time to ask questions. Counselors are available according to major and interest and students can discuss concerns and questions in detail such as graduation, transfer and major requirements, career, exploration, academic difficulty, etc. Counselor will help you with the decision making process to clarify your goals, and create an educational plan that reflects these goals.Same-day appointments are not available at this time.
