Our Mission

The mission of Academic Advising is to create a partnership with students in developing their educational goals while engaging and empowering them to become self-sufficient and active learners.

Academic advisors are available to help students obtain program information, evaluate assessment results, select courses, identify course prerequisites, complete graduation evaluations and assist with transfer planning to a four-year college or university.
