Academic Support Services

students benefit from using the academic resources and services of the college. This professional assistance can increase student success as it provides guidance through the academic journey:


Student Success & Academic Advising
All students are assigned a faculty member in their major as their primary advisor.  Undeclared students are assigned a faculty member in their School.  Students may also confer with the Student Success and Academic Advising Center for drop in assistance or when their advisor is not available.  Many academic questions can also be answered by reviewing information on our website.  The Student Success & Academic Advising Center (SH215) can be reached at 783-2341

Some students benefit from working with a professional advisor who can help the student create an individualized study plan. This might include a review of study habits, time management skills building, reflecting on choice of major, etc.  Drop in to SH 215 to
 directly to schedule an appointment.
