Advising Guides

Advising guides are a series of handouts and worksheets aimed at helping you navigate college, improve the student experience, and make informed decisions about your future. Use them on their own, together, with your advisor or a mentor.

Apply them to your individual situation and make an advising appointment when you have questions or want to talk through something.

Academic Planning

Sometimes you just need a little guidance to sort through your thoughts before you feel confident enough to take action. Use these worksheets in conjunction with advising guides and counsel with your support network to make informed decisions about your future.
