Advising

Our academic resources center can help you reach your full academic potential. Through assessment, we can save you hours of tutoring and studying by identifying precisely the areas on which you should focus.

The student chooses a program of study and is assisted in the creation of a class schedule which will facilitate the process of their course of study. Often the advisee is counseled in problem-solving and decision-making areas and the Center provides any additional support necessary.
