How to Talk with an Academic Advisor

Academic advisors help you develop your educational plan, choose your major, and select the right courses for your program. They can help you connect with resources you may need within the college or within your community. They can also help you with any transfer questions that you might have.

We recommend that you meet with your academic advisor each semester to ensure you will complete your certificate and/or degree on time with the classes you need.

Scheduling an appointment is the best way to speak with an advisor to plan for your future.
