Academic Advising

Policy 3.03

Academic Advisors are available to help students clarify their educational goals and to identify what courses they need to take to meet certificate or degree requirements. During registration periods, academic advisors are available on a walk-in basis; no appointment is necessary. During non-registration periods, students should make an appointment for academic advisement by calling the Student Services Office.

Assigned Advisors

  • All students enrolling in Glen Oaks Community College for the first time will be assigned an advisor at orientation with whom they will meet with thereafter.
  • The requirement to see your assigned advisor is suspended during high traffic times, including the first week of registration, the two weeks before classes start, the first week of class, and any time the student’s assigned advisor is not available to see them. During these times, students may see whomever they wish.

Academic advising is required of all students prior to start of each semester.

Curriculum guides for degrees and certificates are available on the Glen Oaks homepage and in the Student Services Office. Students are encouraged to use the Curriculum Guides to monitor their own progress and to identify courses they have yet to take.
