Academic Advising

CCA Advising Mission
Partner with students to guide and empower them in developing, implementing, and completing academic plans that further their career and life goals.

What is advising?
Advisors guide you through the enrollment process, give you additional educational information, and are a key element to your success. During your first visit, we will help you review your assessment, select appropriate courses, review degree/certificate requirements, and identify resources to help you achieve your educational goals. Through regular contact with an academic advisor, we assist you in planning educational goals, completing degrees, and achieving successful transfer to four-year colleges and universities. We can help you each step of the way -- from getting started though graduation, transfer and anywhere in-between.
