Academic Advisors Are Critical to Your Success

All students pursuing a certificate or associate degree program have an assigned advisor. As a college student, we want to empower you to take ownership of your college experience.

Academic advisors are your partners in achieving your unique educational goals, including assistance with academic and career planning, selecting courses and building schedules, and reviewing options for employment or transfer.
