Make A Plan to Graduate

Academic Advisors do just that.  We help you make a plan that sees you through from your first day to graduation day.

It is vital that you meet with your academic advisor.  We don’t tell you what to do, we help you do what YOU want.

Get Started:

Meet with an Advising Center Counselor in the Student Services office.

  • The Advising Center Counselor will discuss program/degree requirements, placement scores and work with you to create a 1st semester academic plan.
  • You’ll learn about additional test preparation options and roadmaps to success.
  • The advising process (i.e., assignment of academic advisor, advising preparation, importance of advising, etc.) will be fully explained and you can get answers to any questions you may have.
