Academic Advising

About Advising

Academic Advisors offer one-on-one advising sessions to help with identifying degree requirements, developing long-term educational plans, assisting with maximum time-frame appeals, evaluating unofficial transcripts for new students, supporting students transferring on to a university, and much more.

Our team of academic advisors are here to help you develop your plan for reaching your educational goals. We can assist with class selection, degree requirements, major declaration, registration procedures, transfer information, college policies, and more. 

If you are a Running Start student, visit the Running Start homepage to view contact information and learn about the program.

English & Math Placement Pathways

Assessment is vital to know where you will begin with your English and math courses and is required. The Math & English flowcharts detail the sequencing of math and English courses based on program of study.

Program Maps

These program maps showcase example scenarios of a student's possible term-by-term sequencing of classes for each degree or certificate - across our six areas of study. Program maps are suggested academic plans and should not be used in the place of regular academic advising. Your student entry method, placement, course availability, and program requirements are subject to change and transfer credit(s) may change your map/plan.
