Counselors

Student Services provides professionally trained personnel to help students with academic, social and/or personal problems. The Student Services Office is not staffed to provide counseling or therapy on a regular basis, but will refer students to outside agencies if needed.

Faculty and Academic Advisors

Each student is assigned an academic/faculty advisor who is knowledgeable in his/her field of interest. These advisors assist in developing realistic educational and career goals and selecting coursework that best fits student abilities and needs. Students without clear career goals will receive enrollment forms from assigned general education advisors. The student is expected to contact his/her advisor prior to each registration period for assistance in planning appropriate course work.
