Initial academic advisement for each semester is provided for all prospective and current students.  When enrolling in college for the first time, the student meets with a Success Coach for advisement and registration. 

Students should consult with a Success Coach each semester for approval of academic matters such as:

  • degree plans
  • choosing a major
  • choice of electives
  • course overloads
  • registration
  • adding or dropping courses
  • college services
  • educational goals and timelines
