Academic Advising Policy

All students are encouraged to receive academic advising at GSCC.  Before and during registration, students should meet with faculty advisors to learn about college and program requirements, discuss their educational plans, and select courses. GSCC follows a two-tier advising model. In the first tier, first- year/first semester, students may meet with Enrollment Specialists or assigned faculty advisors for advising prior to choosing a program of study. The second tier provides an opportunity for students to meet with their assigned faculty advisors.

Students are responsible for speaking with an advisor who will work with them in planning courses for the upcoming semester(s). 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.
