Taking Care of Business…Everyday

Take advantage of academic counseling support from the second you decide to attend a community college. It is essential that you make an appointment with an academic counselor who will assist you with developing your class schedule and charting out your academic coursework over the course of your time at your community college. Academic counselors are degreed professionals who work alongside of you to assist you in career and educational goal planning and help to demystify the transfer process as well. They spend time discussing your personal and career goals, and also refer you to other people on your campus who can assist you in developing your interests even further. Academic counselors can further provide you with assistance with your short and long range educational planning, financial aid advising, and can answer questions concerning requirements for a specific major, general education, graduation, or transfer articulation agreements to a four-year college or university.
