High School Teacher Helping Student With Written Work

Current Students

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…

  • career exploration
  • 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
