Student Advising
Our advisors will provide information about classes and costs so you can make an informed decision.

Topics our advisors will cover:
• Program prerequisites.
• Program progression.
• Identify resources for additional information.
• Develop plans of study and strategies.

Advisors are not licensed counselors. If you need professional counseling, visit your primary care physician or your health insurance provider. If you do not have health insurance, visit www.healthcare.gov for low-cost plans.

If your issue is an emergency, call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.
