Academic Advising Resources
The staff of academic advising, in collaboration with faculty in all academic areas, provides advising for all academic programs. They will assist you in keeping on track with meeting the necessary requirements for the program in which you are interested. Whether you are pursuing an open program – programs with no special admissions requirements – or criteria-based programs programs with a certain set of admissions requirements, we will work with you.
Each semester the staff is invited to certain classrooms to present valuable information on the various Transfer Programs, Articulation Agreements, and crucial changes that the four-year colleges or universities have made.
If a student who is on Academic Suspension is approved by the Review Committee and is allowed to return on Suspension, the student is required to meet with their assigned advisor and participate in the Retention Intervention Program that requires one-on-one advising and active student participation and events such as Time Management and Study Skills Workshops, briefing their assigned advisor multiple times during each semester as long as the student remains on suspension. In these advising sessions students are encouraged to repeat courses that have failing grades in order to restore the appropriate academic standing.
Students on probation meet with advisors and are given guidelines that are meant to prevent further academic issues. In these advising sessions students are encouraged to repeat courses that have failing grades in order to restore the appropriate academic standing.
