If you have been out of school for years or just a few months, you will probably need a little help getting started. One of your first connections on campus will be your advisors. At Terra State Community College, you are assigned two advisors, one is a professional academic advisor in the Academic Service Center and the other is a faculty advisor. Your faculty advisor is an expert in their respective field and can help you make decisions about career or degree planning. The professional academic advisors in the Academic Service Center can assist you with:
- Academic planning
- Course planning and registration
- Referrals to other student services on campus (e.g. tutoring, disability services, career services, counseling, legal services, financial aid, etc.)
- Transfer options to other institutions
- Academic and personal problem-solving
- Understanding academic policies and procedures
- And any other needs you may have regarding your academic success at Terra State Community College
Appointments are strongly encouraged and recommended.
Make an academic advising appointment by contacting the Academic Service Center at:
419-559-2109 | firstname.lastname@example.org | or stop by: B – 105
Preparing for your advising appointment:
Ensure all prior college and high school transcripts have been received by the Office of Student Records (in A-200).
Assemble and bring an advising folder and keep all advising materials (e.g. Compass or ACT scores, academic plan, Orientation paperwork, etc.) inside of it.
Think about and write down some questions for your advisor.
Research your degree & course requirements using the online course catalog.
Create a tentative course schedule with alternatives by consulting the course schedule in your Terra Student Portal.
