Academic Advising

Academic advising is more than selecting courses for an upcoming semester or making a plan to graduate. Students should initiate and maintain contact with advisors to discuss situations and issues affecting academic performance, including:  

  • Enrolling in Gecko Gear Up
  • Prior Learning Assessment Evaluation
  • Academic, professional and technical programs 
  • Exploration of educational and life goals
  • Information on campus resources and services
  • Selection and sequencing of courses  
  • University transfer options 
  • Work and family commitments

Advisors will listen and respond to personal interests and concerns, suggest useful college resources, share college and departmental policies and procedures, make appropriate referrals for student support services and provide guidance and assistance with academic, career and life goals.

In order to see an advisor you must have completed the Admissions Process
