Advising

 

Transfer students begin the advising process with staff in Academic & Career Planning, and later, their faculty advisors, who help them set and achieve their personal academic goals.

Academic & Career Planning

Academic & Career Planning is available to advise transfer students in every area of planning for academic and career success. Students work with staff to:

  • Arrange meetings with program coordinators (for those who know their intended major)
  • Explore and consider majors (for those who are undecided)
  • Review transfer credit evaluations
  • Identify academic strengths and interests
  • Implement and evaluate academic action plans
  • Discover internship and co-op opportunities

Faculty Advisors

Transfer students who are ready to declare a major are assigned a faculty advisor within their program of study. This advisor will advise based on the student's academic history and goals. Transfer students who are undecided are advised by staff in Academic and Career Planning until a major has been declared. Faculty Advisors:

  • Assist students in their consideration and clarification of educational goals
  • Assist students in developing a plan of study consistent with their goals and objectives
  • Provide accurate information to students and are available for discussions
  • Possess knowledge of programs, resources, policies and procedures
  • Provide timely attention to academic advising matters
  • Assist students in evaluation and re-evaluation of progress toward established goals and educational plans
  • Make referrals to resources within and outside of the college as appropriate
