Plan ahead… GET ADVISED!

Priority registration begins November 1, do you know what classes to take? If not, it’s not too late to GET ADVISED! Whether you’re meeting with an academic advisor, a counselor, or your faculty advisor, your session will be more helpful with a little preparation. To get the most out of your time, follow these tips.

·        Read the CPCC catalog to learn about your program of study, required courses and college policies.

·        Have three jobs and five kids?! (Or even one job and no kids!) Give serious thought about how many classes you’ll be able to successfully manage during the upcoming semester.

·        Bring any paperwork or documents you’ll need. (For example: transcripts from other colleges you’ve attended, placement test scores, financial aid appeal forms, past advisement sheets, etc.)

·        Map out a proposed schedule of classes.

·        Jot down specific questions or concerns you want to discuss.

With a bit of advanced planning, your advising session will lead to a successful college experience, one semester at a time.
