Career Advising

Career Advisors are here to help you. If you’re an existing student who needs support in planning your educational pathway, your career advisor is a great resource. Career Advisors are also available to refer students to community resources for crisis intervention and problem resolution.

Career Advisors  can assist you with:

  • You can check out your Accuplacer results and assisting you with appropriate placement in general education courses
  • Informing you of college resources and support services
  • Understanding degree or certificate requirements
  • Program costs
  • Understanding college policies, procedures
  • Educational planning

Career advisors are assigned based on your area of study. To make an appointment with a career advisor, please call 253.680.7002.
