The College shall provide a program for advising students.

Each new degree seeking student or returning student who has not been enrolled for a period of one year or more will be required to meet with an academic advisor. An academic advisor is defined as a trained professional who helps students decide what courses to take, clarifies degree requirements, and aids in assessing progress toward degree and/or certificate completions.

After meeting with an academic advisor, a student may also be assigned a faculty mentor to support the academic advising process. A faculty mentor is a college faculty member who will provide a student, pursuing a program of study within the faculty member’s academic discipline, with a one-on-one supportive relationship to assist the student in certificate/degree progression and ensure the student follows their established educational plan to completion.
