The Advising and Counseling Center welcomes all students to take advantage of its services; however, the following students are required to see an advisor prior to registration for college and occupational credit courses.

  • All new degree-seeking (students pursuing an AA, AS, BAS-SM, BSN, BSEE, or certificate program) and nondegree-seeking students
  • All students enrolling in preparatory courses
  • Students changing their majors
  • Students placed on academic probation or suspension
