Advisors can help students achieve their academic and personal goals by guiding them through the college environment. Advisors assist students with course selection, review general education and degree requirements, discuss how many courses to take, and assist with long-range academic planning most often related to a student's career and/or transfer goal. Additionally, advisors assist students in learning about the numerous student services on campus such as academic tutoring and the Writing Center, Co-op experiences, career planning, Veterans Services, Counseling, and transfer advising.
All students are strongly encouraged to meet with an advisor prior to registration. Advising appointments are available throughout each semester. Convenient walk-in advising is also available each semester during registration periods. Students should refer to the course brochure or the BCC Advising Web site each semester for dates and times.
