Our advising staff is dedicated to creating an environment that empowers students. We are devoted to quality academic advising in a welcoming atmosphere that is student centered and fosters collaboration. Our services are designed to teach students how to achieve their educational goals.

The Three Characteristics of Academic Advising:
Academic Advising fosters collaboration in which both the student and the advisor have responsibilities.
Academic Advising is a method to help students to create an educational plan that is consistent with their life goals.
Academic Advising teaches decision making skills to empower students to take responsibility for their own decisions and actions.
