Professional academic advisors are available for students. Their primary role is to help students make choices about career/life planning, explore degrees/programs that best align with their career goals. Advisors also assist with examining how the personal choices a student makes impacts their educational and career plans.
Central Arizona College does not currently require academic advising for all students; however, students are encouraged to seek advising on a regular basis (twice a semester).
Appointments are strongly encouraged for in-depth advising. Advisors are also available on a walk-in basis on Mondays for quick questions. We will make every effort to accommodate walk-ins. However, during high volume periods, students with advising appointments will have priority. Please note that during peak registration times, advisors may only be available by walk-in. Please refer to Advising for locations and hours.
We recommend you make an appointment if you need assistance with…
developing your educational goal(s) and plan
deciding upon/or changing a major program of study
understanding your degree requirements
determining your progress toward meeting degree requirements
choosing appropriate courses and/or planning a course sequence
creating a plan to overcome obstacles that are interfering with your academic success (this includes Academic Probation/Suspension)
degree evaluation for graduation application or financial aid appeal
