Academic Advising

Gateway’s friendly and helpful Academic Advisors are here to provide you with information about academic programs, curriculum requirements, academic planning and registration. Academic Advisors are your primary contact regarding your academic plan and other issues such as dropping/adding courses, transferring to another program, withdrawing, or any other matter of an academic nature.

As a newly admitted student, your advisor is your primary source of academic advice and assistance in interpreting placement test results, providing an overview of your program, and helping create your academic plan and initial course schedule. 

As a continuing student, your advisor is able to update you on your progress in your program, review graduation requirements, and provide encouragement, guidance, and referrals as needed. Your advisor is here to help you at any time during your educational experience at Gateway. Advisors are available by appointment in the Student Services area of each campus.

Role of the Student in Advising

Your Academic Advisor is here to help with any questions about academic information or concerns that may affect your academic progress. While your Academic Advisor is here to guide and assist you towards completion of your program, it is ultimately your responsibility to fulfill your degree requirements. If you are new student or a continuing student with remedial requirements, fewer than 24 credits, or do not meet the standards for good academic standing, you should work with your Academic Advisor.  Continuing students with 24 or more credits that are in good academic standing should transition to working with a Faculty Advisor.

Role of the Faculty Advisor

Faculty members from each program serve as Faculty Advisors to continuing students who have completed all remedial requirements and 24 or more credits toward a diploma or associate degree program. Faculty Advisors are available during faculty office hours throughout the year and can help you plan your course schedule during Faculty Advising Days. Faculty Advising days are scheduled prior to the beginning of each registration period. You can find your Faculty Advisor by following the steps under “Find Your Advisor” on this page.
