Academic Advising

Create Your Road Map to Success

Advisors can help you select courses to meet your goals, understand core curriculum and access on-campus resources. You also can discover how to drop or add a course as well as how to transition to a university.

Advisors can answer any question regarding your academic career at COM and beyond. We recommend you meet with an advisor for a confidential advising session each semester.
