Academic Advisement and Planning

Academic Advisement is an educational process that assists students in the clarification of their life and career goals by providing accurate information about academic programs and the selection of a college major. Together with CSS staff students can comprehensively plan their academic program. The CSS staff will also assist with:


  • Academic planning
  • Transfer planning
  • Career development and exploration
  • Choosing a major
  • Goal setting
  • Coping with the challenges of college life
  • Referrals to community agencies
  • Interpreting College policies and procedures

The Advisement Process: Students meet with CSS staff or faculty advisor to discuss academic plans for the coming semester and beyond. Students and faculty should use the advisement syllabus as a reference tool during the advisement process. Together, you will also:

  • Review your degree audit
  • Review advisement syllabus
  • Discuss your progress in your current classes
  • Plan which classes to enroll in next.
  • Ask questions about the transfer and career planning process

After meeting with your advisor students will plan out a course schedule and register for classes.
