Advising & Counseling Services

The mission of Advising is to encourage student responsibility and independence. Advisors foster relationships with students to inspire self-discovery and support academic, career, and transfer goals.

The Role of the Advisor

  • Help you to establish academic goals
  • Assist you as you explore transfer and career opportunities
  • Help you navigate 4Cs programs, policies, and resources
  • Assist you with choosing and/or changing your program of study
  • Teach you to read your academic map and together monitor your progress toward graduation
  • Help you adjust to being a college student
  • Review your course selections with you each semester

The Role of the Student

  • Check your college e-mail every day. Your advisor will contact you there.
  • Get to know your advisor! Visit often.
  • Find your advisor's name and contact information in CampusWeb.
  • Come prepared to every advising session. Bring course selections to review, and questions to discuss with your advisor.
  • Use your academic map. Update it each time you finish a course.

Remember: All matriculated students are required to meet with their assigned advisor prior to registering for classes. Only those students who have made contact with their assigned advisor will be allowed to register.

Our Commitment

4Cs Advisors are committed to customer service. We adhere to the ethical standards set forth by the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS).
