Advising and Testing

Advising & Testing supports student learning by aiding students in deciding what degree or certificate they can pursue to meet their career goals; how to choose courses that provide the shortest path to their chosen goal; and if they are best prepared to start with college level course work. Advising & Testing provides students with information on transferring to 4-year schools; career readiness; faculty advising; and registering for classes.
