We are enthusiastic about providing you with superior academic advising!
Each student in Voiland College is assigned an advisor who assists in the selection of classes and registration and provides counsel as needed throughout the year. Your advisor can help you evaluate career options, discuss academic problems, and provide referral to other resources on campus as appropriate. You should meet with your advisor periodically during each semester to discuss progress and concerns.
