Advising Session Schedule

Check with your program faculty advisor for your advising session date and time.

Current students are encouraged to meet with their faculty advisor for academic advising during Advising Month to prepare for the upcoming semester and plan their next semester's schedule.  Maintaining regular contact with your program faculty advisor is important to your success!

Faculty advisors provide assistance in:

  • planning a program of study consistent with the students' educational and employment objectives
  • selecting courses
  • clarifying college policies and procedures
  • interpreting graduation requirements
  • overcoming barriers to their educational success

Students are encouraged to meet with their program faculty advisor several times each semester.

All students with a declared major are encouraged to meet with their faculty advisor during Advising Month. Students who have not declared a major receive advising services from enrollment advisors.
