Student Success Advising Center

Your Path to Success

The Student Success Advising Center supports students in the development of meaningful educational plans that are compatible with student’s education, career, and life goals. The Center assists students with academic advising, course scheduling, transfer plans, and resources for student success.

Academic advising is the process of students meeting with their academic advisor to determine educational goals and needed course work for their major. All students must meet with an academic advisor in order to register for courses.
