Academic Support Services

Academic Advising

We understand that selecting a major is a big decision. That's why offer supportive and collaborative help for our students to acquire essential knowledge, skills, and habits as they pursue their academic and career goals.

We're here to help you explore interests, values, and personality types and to discover majors and occupations that you will find interesting and rewarding.

Our staff coordinates advising for General Studies majors and students who have not declared a major.
We also identify and assist students who are experiencing academic challenges.
Check out the FAQ to learn more, or use the contact info below to schedule an appointment.

Registration is completed online through Pipeline. We encourage you to meet with your assigned advisor prior to registering for any class, and to follow your degree plan when scheduling classes. 

To make building a class schedule easier, we provide a schedule planner tool available on Pipeline, along with a tutorial for this registration tool.
