Gateway Technical College offers a staff of highly trained and experienced Academic Advisors in each program area. Academic Advisors are available to provide new and continuing students with information about academic programs, curriculum requirements, and assist students with course selection. Academic Advisors are the primary contact for students regarding all things academic planning (registering, dropping/adding classes, transferring to another program or school, withdrawing, or any other matter of an academic nature).
To a newly admitted student, the advisor is the primary source of academic advice and assistance in interpreting placement test results, providing an overview of their program, and helping complete an initial course schedule. To the continuing student, the advisor is able to update students on their progress in their program, review graduation requirements, and provide encouragement, guidance, and referrals as needed. Advisors are available to guide students at any time during their educational experience at the college. They are available by appointment in the Student Services area of each campus.

Role of the Student in Advising
It is the responsibility of the student to consult an Academic Advisor regarding academic information and concerns that may affect the student’s academic progress. While Gateway’s Academic Advisors are here to guide and assist students towards completion of their program, it is ultimately each student’s responsibility to fulfill his/her degree requirements. New and continuing students who have remedial requirements, less than 24 credits, or do not meet the standards for good academic standing should work with their Academic Advisor. Continuing students with 24 or more credits that are in good academic standing should transition to working with a Faculty Advisor as well.

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 plan course schedules during Faculty Advising Days, which are scheduled prior to the beginning of each registration period.
