The Office of Academic Advising

"Students First, Support Always"

The Office of Academic Advising and Transfer Transition is a hub for an array of academic advising services as we provide a supportive environment for students to explore academic opportunities. All students are welcome to drop in or schedule an appointment with a professional advisor to receive academic guidance or help with course registration. We also have a team of trained peer advisors that provide assistance with course selection and the preregistration process.


The Office of Academic Advising empowers students to take ownership of their educational experience and responsibility for achieving their academic goals by providing individualized academic advising in a supportive environment. 


The Office of Academic Advising serves as a liaison with academic departments, faculty advisors, and relevant administrative areas (e.g., Registrar, Office of Financial Aid) in an effort to assist students in developing the skills needed to be successful during their educational experience.
