Who's My Advisor?

New students to the college and students who have not been enrolled for one year or more should start with the Admissions Office or County Campus. After completing Admission requirements, students will see a New Student Advisor to schedule first semester classes.

Current students are assigned to Academic Advisors by program and mostly by last name. In the table below, locate your department, program, and last name grouping. Advisors can be contacted by phone, e-mail or by visiting their offices. Faculty advisors generally have a sign up sheet on their office door for advisement appointments. If you cannot determine your advisor's name after reviewing the table below, contact the Director of Academic Advising, Carol Paguntalan at or (864) 941-8679.
