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.
