Advising for Incoming Students

By working with an Academic Advisor, Terra State Community College students are able to develop an academic plan that will help them achieve their self-declared goals. At Terra State, we believe academic advising is a shared responsibility. Students should be prepared for their advising appointments and follow through with the expectations. Advisors will help you select appropriate courses for your academic program and connect you with campus resources that ensure your success. 

Advising for New Students

New students at Terra State are required to meet with an Academic Advisor in the Office of Academic Advising. Incoming students should contact the Office of Academic Advising at 419.559.2345 to schedule an appointment with an advisor. Appointments are offered Monday through Friday. You may schedule an appointment with an academic advisor after you have been accepted to the College and completed the placement assessment or had prior credit coursework evaluated by the Records Office (if necessary).

During advising, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Connect with an Academic Advisor who wants you to succeed;
  • Ensure you are on the right track to finish the enrollment process;
  • Review the scores from your placement assessment;
  • Identify how prior credit that has been evaluated by the Records Office will apply to your current degree or certificate program, if applicable;
  • Discuss your academic and career goals;
  • Receive information on relevant student support services;
  • Verify where you are in the financial aid process;
  • Determine appropriate courses to register for during your first semester;
  • Register for a CORE (Complete Orientation & Registration Experience) session.

Steps After Advising

Your Academic Advisor will assist you in selecting CORE session. All incoming students are required to attend CORE, where you will officially register for classes and determine your course schedule using your Student Portal. Returning students from the past five years who are exempt from CORE will register for classes at the Registration Help Desk immediately after seeing an Academic Advisor.
