Academic advising helps develop connections between students, faculty and staff to build supportive relationships. Academic advisors provide students with appropriate information, make referrals to campus resources, and support students in achieving their goals.
Faculty advisors are best qualified to discuss career opportunities in their disciplines. They usually have the clearest understanding of their department's curriculum and may be most knowledgeable about what is required of students to be successful in their fields. In addition, JC provides extensive career and employment exploration services.
Advising continues throughout your JC experience. Talk to your faculty academic advisors prior to registering for classes in subsequent semesters. You are responsible for determining that the courses for which you registered are applicable to your degree programs. Advisors help you make these choices.
If you plan to transfer, you should request transfer program information from the four-year universities and colleges that you are considering. Even if it is your first semester, talk with an advisor at your intended transfer institution to be sure you are taking the right courses for the program of your choice.
