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.
