THE ADVISOR'S ROLE
Advisors are available on each campus to help students understand current program information, graduation requirements, college policies and procedures. They are also available to provide guidance on career exploration, academic and career goal setting and developing an academic plan. Advisors also serve as an academic resource for all students in order to facilitate and encourage student persistence and graduation.
Students are required to meet with an academic advisor once they have completed 12+ credit hours of a limited access AS program of study or 20 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.
