Types of advising for new & current students
Advisors and counselors offer a variety of advising opportunities to help you reach your goals.
GPS for first-time-in-college students
You don’t need to attend GPS if you:
- Already have an associate degree or higher.
- Have 12 or more college credits with 2.0 GPA or higher.
- Are a current or former ACC student.
- Are a high school student enrolling in a dual credit course.
- Will be taking ESOL classes.
If one of these applies to you, attend a one-on-one advising session instead.
One-on-one academic advising
- Academic difficulties
- College skills
- University transfer preparation
- Major and career planning
Advising/counseling sessions are a walk-in basis; no appointment is necessary.
