Academic Advising

Student success navigators serve not only as academic advisors but as a student’s academic, financial and total resource advocate or coach. They are part of a new initiative at the College focusing on student success. Students will have an assigned navigator to meet with for advising and any questions they may have. Navigators will serve as the “go-to” person to help students throughout the college experience.

    What is Walk-In Advising?

    Walk-in advising is a 15 minute advising session on a first-come, first-served basis. During walk-in advising times, you may not be able to meet with your assigned Navigator. Services during walk-in advising include: questions or information on the current or upcoming semester, questions on prerequisite courses, and providing students with resources for growth and autonomy in the registration process.

    What is a Scheduled Appointment?

    At Jackson College, students develop an advising relationship with their Student Success Navigators during 30-minute appointments. Every relationship is built on mutual respect and openness of the Navigator and Student. Navigators assist students in determining individualized resources and planning based on open communication of the students’ needs and long-term goals.

    Scheduled appointments are 30 minute advising sessions at a specified time on a Navigator’s calendar. Services available during a scheduled appointment include: long-term planning, academic success planning, transfer institution/class questions, and SEM-140 course appointments.

    Please note that appointments must be scheduled at least one business day in advance. During peak registration times, appointments may be booked several weeks in advance. Please plan ahead when making an appointment.
