Student Advising

Personal and Academic Advising

Students attending college for the first time experience many changes in their lives. These changes present challenges: making new friends, adapting to a new living and learning environment, managing financial concerns and meeting time management pressures. Student success advisors recognize that these difficulties are real, but not insurmountable. Student Success Advisors support students to develop proactive plans for effective transition to, and success within, the college learning environment. This includes providing important course, program and institutional information, referrals for support with learning, personal and financial barriers.

For many students, academic issues become a concern, whether it is the realization that the program is different than they expected or problems with academic progress. Student success advisors can help students re-evaluate program choices and explore ways of helping students succeed academically. Recognizing these situations early in the college year, and dealing with them immediately, greatly increases chances of success.
