Academic advising is available to all Lake Campus students. Through this service, students can get advice in planning the schedule of courses they will take during their college career. Students must consider General Education requirements, classes in specialized fields, courses that must be taken in sequence, and electives. Advisors make course recommendations, assist students in planning and scheduling, and provide individualized academic information to help ensure that students meet degree requirements and gain appropriate career skills. Incoming freshmen students are required to meet with an academic advisor.
