Students are encouraged to meet with an Academic and Career Counselor prior to enrollment to get program-specific information and have any questions answered. Some programs require the student to meet with the Academic and Career Counselor prior to completing the registration process. Students who are struggling or failing in a program are referred to the Academic and Career Counselor for advising, counseling and individualized assistance.
Services are available at each of our campus locations. Students are encouraged to make an appointment with the Academic and Career Counselor; however, they will be welcomed on a walk-in basis. Walk-ins may have to wait to be served.
