who is my Advisor?
Academic advising is done by Academic Advisors and by Division/Program Advisors from different disciplines based on the degree or certificate you are pursuing.
If you have declared a major, you are encouraged to contact a Division or Program Advisor. Division and Program Advisors have specialized knowledge about your area of study and your specific major and can more accurately advise you in making decisions that will help you be more successful.
If you are an undecided student and need help in Choosing a Career or Major, you should meet with an Academic Advisor. You can also begin looking at the Advising Worksheet which contains all the General Education requirements that are imbedded into all AWC degrees. To schedule an appointment to meet with an advisor, please contact one of the offices listed on the right of this page.
With the help of an Academic Advisor, you can:
Understand and utilize placement test results.
Define and refine educational goals and objectives, and understand the consequences of alternative courses of action.
Be provided information regarding the nature and purpose of higher education.
Be encouraged to become an active participant in your educational planning and college life.
Make appropriate course, certificate, and degree selections.
