WHAT IS ACADEMIC ADVISING?
One method for ensuring success during your college studies is to gain a good understanding of your program, solidifying your academic goals, and taking charge of it as soon as possible. If you require assistance with your admission, your student file, your course load, progression, or your course schedule, our academic advisors are available to assist you.
AN ACADEMIC ADVISOR IS ABLE TO HELP YOU WITH:
Support for academic success
Individual program planning
Conditional admission status or student success contract
Conflicts or absences from class
Course drops and/or changes
Request for a permanent incomplete (see below)
Request for a course equivalence, substitution, or exemption
Information on university programs & admission requirements

**COURSE DROPS: NOT ALLOWED AFTER 2ND WEEK OF CLASSES.
If you are not satisfied with a course, you may drop it from your schedule. However, to drop a course, you must do so before the end of the second week of classes.
Permanent Incompletes: A permanent incomplete is an official status within a student’s record indicating that the student experienced an extraordinary circumstance mid-semester and was unfit to complete the course(s).
- For permanent incompletes, you must provide appropriate documentation proving you couldn’t complete your studies for a period of three (3) weeks or more for a serious motive, including illness or death of a spouse or death of a family member (see Regulation Promoting Success for details).
- The College does not give permanent incompletes because you are failing a course or because you were absent for a final exam.
