Academic Advising

South Central College’s academic advisors are dedicated to enhancing each student’s academic goals, while assisting students in making decisions and developing educational and career plans. At SCC, students are advised by both faculty advisors and professional academic advisors located in the Student Affairs Center.

Advisors are available to assist students with advising regarding:

  • Academic Motivation Program advising
  • Accuplacer exam interpretation or placement test interpretation
  • Degree or program of study selection
  • Course selection and course sequences
  • Degree and graduation requirements
  • Degree Audit Report (DAR’s Report) interpretation
  • Campus resources available for students

Meeting with Your Advisor is Easy!

Every program at South Central College has its own advisor.

How do I get assigned to an advisor?

Students in technical programs (i.e. Marketing, Agribusiness, Automotive Services, Phlebotomy, Computers, Carpentry, etc.) are assigned a faculty advisor in your program of study, and you can also get help from someone on our professional academic advising team if you are not able to contact your faculty advisor.

Students in programs that are related to general education courses (that are only designed to transfer to a university for achieving a Bachelor’s Degree) including the Associate of Arts degree, the Associate of Fine Arts, and Broad Field Sciences Associates of Applied Science are assigned to the professional academic advising team.

Students that are in the Pre-Nursing major as also assigned to a professional academic advising team member in the Student Affairs Center.  Pre-Nursing students may also contact the Nursing Department team with questions about applying to the Nursing Programs.

What if I am a newly admitted degree seeking student and have questions?

If you are new to the South Central College community as a degree seeking student, professional academic advisors will be available at your STAR Session where you will register for your classes. Please review your academic program web pages so that you can learn about the requirements for the degree that you are pursuing.
