Your Oregon Coast adventure begins with a meeting with one of our academic advisors. Our advising staff can help you chart a course best suited to get you to the degree or certificate you’re aiming for. Current students are invited to meet with advisors, to periodically check on progress toward their goals.

 Academic advisors are available to support student success by: 

  • Interpreting placement assessment results.
  • Recommending appropriate classes.
  • Discussing degree/ program options.
  • Explaining course content and requirements.
  • Helping transition into the College culture/ academic environment.
  • Helping students have a successful college experience.
  • Explaining how to transition to a university or four-year college.
  • Assisting in understanding College policies and procedures.
