Academic Advising Policy

Academic advising is an important part of the educational journey at Gadsden State. All students are expected to participate in academic advising sessions at GSCC.  Upon entry into GSCC, faculty or staff advisors are assigned to students based upon a chosen program of study. Assigned advisors will assist students with creating a plan for program/degree completion. Before and during registration, students should meet with the appropriate faculty or staff advisors to learn about college and program requirements, discuss their educational plans, and select courses.  

Students are responsible for speaking with an advisor who will work with them in planning courses for the upcoming semester(s) and may see assigned advisors and contact information in their OneACCS student profile. The advice and recommendation of advisors do not constitute a promise or a contract ensuring a student’s graduation on schedule, or the completion of specific requirements but does provide additional support and guidance for students to enhance their experience.
