Educational Planning, Counseling, and Completion


Center for Advising, Career & Transfer

Getting the degree you want on the timeline you want takes careful planning. We’re here to help you formulate that plan and keep it on track. We recommend that you see a Program Advisor before registering for classes – not just the first time, but for every semester. A Program Advisor can make sure you’re progressing correctly through your degree plan, answer your questions and help you decide on changes you might want to make.
