Professional Advising Center

Print Friendly

The Professional Advising Center (PAC), located in room 1207, is staffed by five full-time professional advisors who assist students in scheduling and registering for classes. The Advisors are available each weekday by walk-in or appointment.

Office hours are Monday – Thursday, 8:00 am – 7:00 pm and Friday, 8:00 am – 4:00 pm.

We also encourage students to contact PAC Advisors to answer questions about class schedules and registration.

Students are assigned to the PAC when they are first admitted to the college. Students will remain with their PAC advisor until they successfully complete 30 or more credit hours of courses. After students attain 30 college credits, they are re-assigned to an advisor that actually resides in the academic division of their major.

In addition to professional advising services, each PAC advisor works as a liaison to a specific division on campus to further enhance the advising experience for students, as well as to provide supplemental advising support and up-to-date information about programs offered by the division. This beneficial relationship promotes ease of transitioning students to a divisional advisor in their chosen major and/or meeting admission requirements for a specific program.
