Academic Advisement Center

Students with a declared major must be advised by a faculty advisor from their academic department or program. Students who have not declared a major must be advised by advisors in the Academic Advisement Center (AC-2C01). *If you are in a specialized program (e.g., SEEK, ESL), please contact the appropriate office for additional assistance and instructions.


The Academic Advisement Center empowers students to develop the skills and knowledge they need to achieve their academic, professional, and personal goals. We provide advising services and registration support for the College community and help students: create and execute educational plans, explore life and career aspirations, and persist to graduation and beyond.


  1. Provide student-centered advising services and support that enables students to take responsibility for their academic and career choices.
  2. Equip students with the tools and resources they need to: assess their interests and abilities, identify academic and career goals, confidently declare a major/minor, effectively use technology, and develop academic plans.
  3. Encourage students to become engaged, self-aware, and deliberate decision-makers.
  4. Provide advising services, training, and degree audit support for the College community.
