Advising

New Student Advising and Course Registration

Garrett College’s academic advisors understand that academic advising is the key component to helping students achieve their educational goals. Our goal is to help you succeed academically so that you can fulfill your dreams and meet your potential. At Garrett College, students are advised by both faculty advisors and academic advisors located in the Academic and Student Success Center (ASSC).

Advisors are available to assist students with advising regarding:

•  Accuplacer/placement assessment interpretation

•  Degree or major selection

•  Course selection and sequence

•  Graduation requirements

•  Academic support resources

•  Career and transfer guidance

All new and transfer students must schedule an advising appointment through the Admissions Office.

All New Student Advising dates, unless noted, include check-in, picture for student photo ID, retrieval of student username and password, general welcome session, advising and course registration, parent sessions, and visits to the college business office and financial aid. Tours of our residence halls are also available.
