Meet Our Advisors:

Look below for the Advisor (alphabetical order) on your campus who advises for your Program of Study.

As the College eases back into a very limited on-campus presence, Students, don’t forget you can meet with your academic advisor face to face from the comfort and safety of your home! Advisors can been “seen” using video conferencing software like WebEx and Microsoft Teams. Ask your advisor about this option!

All on-campus advising sessions will be by appointment only. Please email the advisor for your program about on-campus scheduling options. Note: face coverings and social distancing practices will be required for any on-campus meeting.
