Advising Appointments

Current students seeking assistance from an academic advisor are welcome to make a 30 minute one-to-one appointment at any of our four campuses. These appointments are intended to assist students with in-depth questions regarding their educational planning.

Students are expected to come well prepared to their appointment. This includes writing their questions ahead of time and doing preliminary research on their own regarding program requirements for their chosen educational goal.
