Academic Advisement

The Office of Retention and Academic Advisement provides continuous support for all aspects of student-Center Advisement, including English-as-a-Second-Language students. The Advisement Center is responsible for the integration, facilitation, coordination, and fostering of the driven effort in academic advisement that supports student success.  These objectives are achieved through the development of seamless advisement and registration process. The Advisement Center serves as the primary liaison between the academic divisions and the Success Coaches who provide advisement and academic support to all students.

WHAT IS A SUCCESS COACH?

Success Coaches are assigned to the Advisement Center and Divisional Departments. They build partnerships with the students through advisement that includes assisting with student’s developmental skills and habits that contribute to college success. These skills include: career goal settings, learning strategies, time management, organization, and empowerment.

WHO SHOULD COME IN FOR ADVISEMENT?

(As of March 23, 2020-call or e-mail)

  • All Essex County College new students after having completed an application and the placement exam (or were waived)
  • A new student that needs to register for their 1st semester at Essex County College

While students are urged to keep parents informed of plans and their progress, the advising relationship basically takes place with the student and advisor only.
