Academic Advising

Academic Advising

You don't have to do it alone. Students who are new to Clark State will be advised during their first two semesters at Clark State by success coaches.

A success coach will establish the initial contact after placement testing and/or during the New Student Orientation. Throughout the first semester, the success coach will communicate with you via e-mail, request  advising appointments, be available for support and then help you with advising for the next semester.

Students in certain majors and/or programs (e.g. TRIO Student Support Services or Accessibility Services) may be referred to their designated advisor immediately after New Student Orientation. The specific co-hort of students who are attempting to apply to the Health Technologies programs would be advised until they have met the specific qualifiers.

Learning outcomes for students who participate in academic advising:

  • Students will create an academic plan
  • Students will be familiar with their academic major and career planning tools
  • Students will understand how to prepare for future advising appointments
  • Students will be familiar with campus resources
