Advising

Academic Advisers and Student Success Navigators provide students with support throughout their college career, from application to graduation. An Academic Adviser or Student Success Navigator will be assigned to students based on the student's program of study. Students receive assistance with fulfilling educational goals and navigating a pathway to degree completion. Advisers and Navigators assist with Student Planning and provide a guided pathway all the way to graduation.
