Academic Advising

Professional Advisors are here to help you define and develop realistic educational goals and to help you understand the objective/requirements necessary to meet those goals. Our Centers promote a collective and shared responsibility. We encourage you to meet with your advisor on a regular basis to monitor your progress towards completion and remember to utilize all resources available to you. If you are a new student at South Texas College, remember to visit the Enrollment Center to ensure the admissions process is complete prior to meeting with an advisor.

Mandatory Advisement for First-Time-in- College Students

To ensure you are on the right pathway to completion since the beginning, South Texas College implemented Mandatory Advisement for First-Time- in-College (FTIC) students. If you are an FTIC student, a Mandatory Advisement Hold is placed on your student record to ensure that you meet with an advisor for educational planning prior to registering for courses. During the mandatory advisement session, the professional advisor will develop an Individualized Educational Plan and address important information such as stackable credentials when applicable and support services/resources available to help you stay in school and complete a certificate/degree. The professional advisor will talk to you about the importance of only taking courses within your selected career pathway and to utilize DegreeWorks to monitor ongoing progress towards completion for your certificate/degree. Remember to visit the Enrollment Center to ensure the admissions process is complete prior to meeting with an advisor.

For more information please contact your advisor or call the Advising Office at 872-8372.
