What is an academic advisor?

An academic advisor is someone who provides both academic advice and guidance to students based on their individual needs. An academic advisor assists students with identifying and clarifying their academic, transfer, and career goals. Academic advisors ensure that students follow the degree or certificate requirements for a specific program and that they are aware of the college’s academic policies and procedures.

How do I figure out who my advisor is? 

Your academic advisor depends on your major.  You may see an advisor listed in My Degree Path next to Advisor and in Starfish Connect under Network (you’ll see his or her picture there too).  If you don’t see an advisor listed there, you can use the Find Your Advisor search tool on Academic Advising’s website.

Students may take Developmental English and Mathematics courses simultaneously if both are required.

Most courses require completion of Developmental English or ESL courses (if the student is so placed) and eligibility for ENGL 101. See the Course Placement List for a list of courses open to students in Developmental English and/or ESL courses.

Students should be advised to take Mathematics courses in sequential semesters until requirements are completed.
