The Columbus Academic Advising Program Mission
The mission of the academic advising program at GMC Columbus is to intentionally assist students in identifying, understanding and achieving educational, personal and professional goals by following a path of learning and discovery. To that end, advisors will foster student success by facilitating an educational experience that holistically leads students to become self-directed, life-long learners and decision-makers.

The purpose of academic advisement is to facilitate the selection of courses that will be appropriate to individual student needs and goals. The advisement sessions provide an opportunity for the student to get professional assistance in the evaluation, selection, and accomplishment of the educational program that meets the educational, professional, and personal goals of the student.
Prepare for your appointment by viewing your Academic Evaluation from Web Advisor and selecting classes from the posted schedule.
Discuss your goals and plans with your advisor so that the advisor may advise you on course work that supports such goals. If you plan to go to a specific senior college and know your intended major, that is important information for your advisor. Research your follow-on school for courses that you might can complete at GMC.
Inform your advisor of any change in your program or degree plans. If you choose your plans for a major or concentration, then let your advisor know. All changes of degree programs must be completed through your academic advisor.
If you plan to enroll in online classes, Guides for Success in Online Classes will give you guidelines for success and the link to purchase your book. Books for online classes are not available at the bookstore.
