Information on Academic Advisement
The purpose of academic advisement is to foster the development of Gloucester County College students by offering assistance and guidance in all aspects of the academic program. It is an advisor's responsibility to assist and guide the student. However it is the student's responsibility to make final decisions about their academic and program career selection.

- Make your appointment early in the semester to avoid the last minute rush
- Read and become familiar with the catalog and the control sheet for your major
- Come prepared with tentative course selections for the upcoming semester
- Write out all questions and concerns so that you do not have to leave unsure of something
- Be prepared to participate in the session. Ask questions! Probe! It is your academic career that is being discussed.
