Student with an advisor

Academic Advising

Academic Advising is a valuable relationship to help students achieve academic and personal success. In partnership with each student, we proactively design academic plans, provide guidance and foster growth so that students persist towards accomplishing their educational goals and prosper as individuals.

Your advisor is assigned based on your program of study and your primary campus location. To find your advisor, visit My Gateway | My Profile card. Their name will be listed there. Need to make an appointment? We have a few convenient options for you.
