Advising Center Philosophy

The advising program at SPSCC provides students with the knowledge they need to identify their educational goals, develop an appropriate educational plan, and monitor their progress toward achieving those goals.

The college's educational advising program is based on the following assumptions:

  • Educational advising is an integral part of a comprehensive student success program.
  • Student/faculty interaction is an important factor in student success, and educational advising provides for such interaction.
  • The college is responsible for providing varied approaches to advising that serve the diverse student population.
  • The individual student is ultimately responsible for his/her educational and life decisions.
