Academic Advising

Academic advising is available to students through Program Advisors, Transfer Specialists and Academic Success Coordinators.

Program Advisors
Associate in Science (AS), Associate in Applied Science (AAS), diploma, and certificate programs all have faculty Program Advisors who assist students with program planning and course selection, and provide detailed information about programs, employment opportunities and transfer options. Students are strongly encouraged to consult with their Program Advisor prior to registering each term. Contact information can be found on the Program Requirements Guides.

Transfer Specialists
The Transfer Specialists are available to provide transfer information based on each student's unique goals. Students should also meet with a Transfer Specialist if their major or transfer college changes.

It is important that students who intend to transfer begin speaking with a Transfer Specialist early in their academic career to ensure they are taking the appropriate courses. Students are advised to meet with the transfer advisor frequently and consult available transfer guides for specific colleges and universities.

The Transfer Specialists are also the academic advisors for the Associate in Arts (AA) degree and the Health Science Broad Field Associate in Science (AS) degree, and are located in the Transfer Center, Room 1365.
