Academic Advising

Students are either assigned a faculty advisor or encouraged, according to their current degree program (i.e., curriculum) or area of interest, to choose an advisor to meet with throughout the academic year. This is most important during the priority registration period to plan for the following semester.
Your faculty advisor can assist you with the following:
  • discussion of educational and career goals
  • selection of appropriate courses
  • providing information about educational options, degree requirements, and college policies and procedures
  • making referrals to college/community resources as appropriate
  • assistance with monitoring progress towards your educational goals, and encouraging responsibility and effective decision-making

Students can earn a high school equivalency diploma by successfully completing 24 college credits: NYS High School Equivalency Diploma
