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.
Each quarter there will be an opportunity for the student to meet with the academic advisor for registration for the next college term. Advising allows the student to pre-plan their academic schedule and to develop the best schedule of courses. Advisement is a cooperative effort that requires the guidance of the advisor and the acceptance of the student to achieve a schedule for completion of the education program best suited to the student's goals.
