Effective student advisement is an important function at Central Georgia Technical College. Student advisement of currently enrolled students is the responsibility of the full-time faculty. Faculty members are assigned as advisors to specific students according to their selected field of study. New students will initially see an advisor in the CARE Center to determine a class schedule. It is the responsibility of the student to schedule an advisement session with their faculty advisor prior to registering each semester.
The role of the academic advisor is to assist students in making sound decisions regarding their program of study and their career goals. The academic advisor may offer opinions and suggestions relevant to program of study, but the student must accept responsibility for final decisions.
Although students may take courses at any campus, advisement should be done with the assigned program major advisor. It is the student’s responsibility to be aware of courses required for graduation/completion of the chosen major, to meet all graduation/completion requirements, and to complete the registration process each term.
Academic advisors keep regularly scheduled office hours. Students should plan to meet with their academic advisor prior to the registration process each term for advising and creating an appropriate course schedule.
Academic advisor responsibilities include helping students interpret degree requirements, monitoring academic progress, and preparing course schedules. In addition, the academic advisor may recommend or refer the student to other offices or agencies for personal, financial, or other type of counseling services to answer questions or solve problems related to academic or career matters.
