Academic Counseling

University life can be stressful and difficult at times. It can be hard to know where to go and what to do. Our Academic Success and Wellness Counselor is here to help you on the sometimes confusing path that is your college experience. Academic Counseling focuses on two main areas: Academic Advising and Personal Challenges.

Academic Advising

One-on-one Academic Advising sessions are available to help you develop your Academic Plan, a yearly plan of courses to focus on. Academic Advising sessions can help you choose a balanced course load and ensure you are continually making enrollment choices to further your progress towards graduation.

You can book your appointment for academic advising, financial aid counseling, wellness counseling, study strategies and graduate school advising through the Bay Advisor.
