The best way to meet with an Educational Advisor is by scheduling a one-on-one appointment. Walk-in hours are also available for quick questions and resources.

Running Start Students

Balancing high school and college classes through Running Start is an important balance. That’s why in-person orientation is required for new Running Start students.

Advising Center

The Advising Center provides students with the knowledge they need to identify educational goals, develop an appropriate educational plan, and monitor progress toward achieving those goals. The Advising Center's philosophy is that:

  • 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 their educational and life decisions.
