Welcome to Counseling, Advising and Retention Services (CARS) where our academic advisors look forward to assisting you in defining and achieving your academic and career goals. If you have been admitted and assessed for English, reading and math, as required, you are now ready to meet with an academic advisor.

At your initial advising meeting, the advisor will explain your placement results, the requirements of your major, review important college rules and terminology, teach you about transfer resources, and assist you in choosing classes for your first registration.

From September through November, and February through July, advising is by appointment:
