Academic advisors are available on each campus to provide current program information, graduation requirements, policies and procedures. They are also available to provide guidance in developing and pursuing goals and creating academic plans. They provide mentoring, personal guidance, support and advocacy.

Students are required to meet with an academic advisor once they have completed 15 credit hours of a limited access AS program of study or 30 credit hours of an AS or AA degree program to discuss their progress and program completion. Please contact an academic advisor for any academic questions you might have.
