Academic Advising

Types of advising for new & current students

Advisors and counselors offer a variety of advising opportunities to help you reach your goals.

New student advising

If you are a new student, you will meet with an academic advisor or counselor as part of the enrollment process.

They will guide you in choosing classes that match your college and career plans.

Advising sessions are on a first-come, first-served basis—no appointment is necessary. Contact a campus Advising Center.

What to bring
