Academic counselors help you plan your college career, from listing out which classes to take each term to finding out your transfer options. Counselors help you realize your full potential by help you create a comprehensive student education plan; meet graduation and transfer requirements; manage a balance between work, life and school; connect you to support services; and deal with things like academic holds, prerequisites and more.
