Academic Advising Center

The Advising Center provides assistance to students in attaining their educational goals through academic advising and intervention to help make a successful transition to, and establish their place in college life.  Advisors assist students with taking responsibility for learning how to set academic, career, and personal goals and the ability to develop strategies for achieving them.  Advisors provide guidance with helping students graduate in a timely manner by successfully meeting all requirements. Advisors also assist with referrals and mentoring.  The Advising Center advises all students in the first year of their collegiate experience as well as students who have not declared a major during the second year. Students will meet with their academic advisor at least twice (2) each semester.  Advising Center advisors work closely with all major program advisors to ensure that students receive comprehensive advising.  The Advising Center is located in the Delany Building, 2nd floor.
