After you've completed orientation and assessment, your last step before registering for classes is to meet with an academic advisor. We encourage you to meet with an advisor early so you'll have first pick of the classes you want.
Click on your region's drop-down at the bottom of this page for information on meeting with an advisor at your campus.Our team of advisors will meet with you to discuss your educational and career goals, then they'll help you design an academic plan that best fits your needs.
All new students will meet with an academic advisor before registering for classes. An advisor will help you determine which courses to take to earn the degree or certificate of your choice, and if your goal is to transfer to a four year college or university, our advisors will help you with that too.
As a continuing student, you will also have access to an academic advisor who will help you determine which courses to take to complete your degree or certificate program. If your goal is to transfer to a four-year college or university, our advisors will help you with that too. See your campus below and the Current Student Resources (on the right side of this page) for more information.

As a full-time student working toward an Associate Degree, you should be aware of the new statewide initiative, 15 to Finish, beginning with the 2014-2015 Academic Year. Our advisors will work with you to develop an academic plan that allows you to complete your degree. For some students it might be in their best interest to take 15 credit hours a semester. These students taking the required 15 credit hours per term should review our free course guarantee (see below) if they are unable to register for a course in their plan because the College has failed to offer the class. Some stipulations do apply, and the Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs will help determine if you are eligible.
Free Course Guarantee:
Students who follow their degree maps and find that a course is not available during the term it is listed on the map may be eligible to take that course for free (no cost) during a term the course is available. To be eligible for this free course, a student must meet the following criteria:
Please note that other stipulations may apply. Please contact the Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs to determine if you are eligible for the free course guarantee.
