Academic advising is one of the most important services a student will receive in college. The student and the counselor work together to achieve the student’s educational goals.

Tri-C counselors help students:

• Learn about requirements for Tri-C’s degree and certificate programs and help track degree completion using DegreeWorks.

• Develop educational goals as they relate to careers.

• Develop short- and long-term academic plans.

• Explore majors consistent with a student’s interests, abilities and goals.

• Explore transfer opportunities at area colleges and universities.

• Develop course schedules that consider a student’s academic background, course prerequisites and educational goals.

• Become aware of and interpret academic policies as they relate to a student’s situation.

• Identify appropriate resource personnel to assist students with study skills, career counseling, financial aid, personal counseling and resolving complaints.

• Understand the Ohio Transfer Module, Transfer Assurance Guides (TAGS) and Transferology as tools to aid with transfer planning.
