Advising for Student Success

Academic Advising educates students as they navigate the world of higher education; providing support for articulation and achievement of their educational and career goals, and by creating an environment for personal transformation, lifelong learning, and success.

New Student Advising

New students are welcomed to Edmonds Community College with a New Student Advising (NSA) session. Once students have their math and English placement (ACCUPLACER Assessment and exceptions), students can sign up to attend an NSA session. During NSA, an advisor will help you to understand your test results and course placements, connect your strengths and interests with programs of study at Edmonds CC, choose first quarter classes, and teach you how to register for classes online. Call Advising to get signed up!

Advising Sessions

Advising sessions are offered by the Advising Resource Center weekly. These sessions are open to prospective, new, and continuing students. During a session, an advisor will lead discussion about your program, answer group questions, and provide time for individual advising for each student in attendance. You will be able to meet fellow students in your program, receive answers to your academic advising questions, and plan your next steps with the help of an advisor. Check out our schedule of the upcoming advising sessions

Always come to your Advising Session prepared!
