Details on your Advising Meeting
Your advising meeting may be by phone, via zoom, or on campus and students will be connected to their person, will receive career & transfer discussions with their advisor to support their short term and long term goals, register for courses, review Student Portal, college payment options, and ensure that they have a strong start that will lead to a strong finish!
Here are some questions you can review to be prepared:
- What programs interest you?
- What is your short term and long term goal?
- Would you prefer to attend classes online or in person?
- Do you intend to transfer to a four-year school?
- Do you want to attend college full-time or part-time?
- What obligations do you have outside of school?
