New Student Advising

Meeting with an Advisor is Step 3 in the Getting Started series as indicated above. If you have been admitted and assessed for English, reading and math as required, or have unofficial college transcripts with college level English and math courses successfully completed, you are ready to meet with an Advisor. Transfer students can be advised using hand-carried unofficial transcripts but must submit official college transcripts from all previous institutions to the Records office for official transfer credit evaluation.

If you placed into MAT 012, please also bring a copy of your high school transcript to your advising session.
