  • Interpret placement test results and provide course recommendations for new students
  • Determine eligibility for placement test exemptions
  • Provide assistance identifying an educational success goal
  • Assist in the resolution of academic difficulties
  • Provide referrals to on and off campus resources when needed

The Advising Center operates on a first-come, first-served basis.
