Advising/Coaching & Registration

Our Mission: To provide accurate academic record information and policy services to direct, monitor, record and report on a student’s academic progress from their initial enrollment through graduation.

Academic Advising/Coaching
In a flexible learning environment where there is a choice among educational programs and course offerings, it is important for students to prepare their schedules carefully each semester in consultation with an academic advisor/coaching counselor.  A professional  academic advisor/coaching counselor assists students in planning schedules, setting academic goals, and identifying helpful resources.  After the student has completed their freshman year and declared a major, a faculty advisor who is familiar with the programmatic requirements of the major will be assigned.

While students are responsible for planning their schedules to meet all requirements for graduation, the academic advisor/coaching counselor is expected to review with them the academic regulations, graduation requirements, curricular programs and course offerings, the registration process, and the students’ academic responsibilities as a member of the College community.

Meeting with your academic advisor/coaching counselor at least twice per semester will help you stay on track so that you can start and finish strong!

Students must officially enroll for each course taken. Registration is conducted in the fall for spring courses and in the spring for summer courses.

Official registration includes:
  • Meeting with an academic advisor/coaching counselor each semester to complete a freshmen, sophomore, or junior check
  • Discuss the registration process (priority registration dates and necessary steps to register) with an academic advisor/coaching counselor during the check
  • Receive clearance to register online through web advisor from the academic advisor/coaching counselor or faculty advisor
  • Students who have had a senior check with the Registrar will register online through web advisor
  • Completion of all financial obligations with the Office of Student Financial Services.
Failure to complete the above procedures will result in the student receiving no credit for courses. If a student attends class without having completed these procedures, even if he/she has completed assignments, credit will not be awarded. 

It is the students responsibility to be registered for classes and cleared through the Office of Student Financial Services. Students who attend classes and who are not properly registered and cleared will not be reinstated into the class and will not receive credit.

No change of program will be permitted after the end of the second week of classes.

The Office of Advising/Coaching & Registration is located at 229 Liberty Street.
