Faculty Information

Academic Advising

All students are assigned to a faculty advisor who will be a consistent resource throughout the college experience. Advisors assist students with academic and professional information by providing individualized advising, occupational information, and academic planning assistance. However, each student is personally responsible for assuring that all academic requirements for graduation are met.

Advisors may refer students to the Student Success Center for information regarding accommodations as they relate to their educational programs, for counseling and for assistance with personal or professional concerns.

Advisors post designated office hours for student advising, and upon request, can schedule appointments outside of the posted hours. A record of academic advising sessions is coordinated by each advisor and maintained by the advisor.

Advisor responsibilities:

  • Post designated office hours for student advising.
  • Meet with each advisee to plan their program and semester schedules each semester.
  • Provide guidance in the selection of courses and monitor the student’s academic progress toward graduation.
  • Document advising sessions by placing the appropriate signed and dated paperwork in the student’s advising folder.
  • Help students adjust to the college experience; and when necessary, direct them to appropriate resources and support services.
  • Provide advisees with guidance for their Service Learning Project.
  • Approve Service Learning Projects before the student implements the project.
  • Provide advisees with directions and forms for the Professional Program Portfolio, if required.
  • Approve the advisee’s Professional Program Portfolio.

Advisee responsibilities:

  • Know the information contained in the College Catalog and College Student Handbook and act accordingly.
  • Contact their advisor at the beginning of each semester during posted office hours, or by email, or telephone.
  • Contact their advisor immediately if an academic problem occurs, such as notification of unsatisfactory progress from an instructor and/or Registrar.
  • Create a tentative schedule of classes and contact their advisor for review and approval of registration.
  • Discuss schedule changes with their advisor before submitting schedule change paperwork to the Registrar and/or Financial Aid office.
  • Submit a Service Learning Proposal to their advisor for approval before beginning the project.
  • Submit a Professional Program Portfolio, if required and all appropriate forms to their advisor by the required deadline.
