• Academic Advising

    Your academic adviser is a key partner in your Carroll education. Required for all new students, academic advising is optional for current and returning students.

    All new students complete an online pre-advising session, during which you will develop an academic plan and prepare to navigate the critical first term.

    For help with registration, transfer planning, declaring a major and more, advisers are always available on a walk-in basis in the Advising and Transfer Center.

    The Advising office is open during the following hours:

    Monday - Thursday: 8:30 a.m. - 6:30 p.m. 
    Friday: 9:30 a.m. - 4 p.m.

    Academic Program Templates

    Looking for a viable pathway towards an associate degree? Take a look at our academic program plan templates. Specific to each major, these templates present ideal scenarios for full-time college-ready students. The plans extend over more terms for part-time students.

    Transitional coursework and, in some cases, certain higher level math and science prerequisites are required prior to the courses outlined in the templates. If you want to custom design your academic plan, consult with an academic adviser.

    Advising for Academic Difficulty

    Academic advising also helps students experiencing academic difficulty. Students on academic probation must see their assigned probation adviser prior to registering, for course planning and for classroom success tips.

    Academic advisers contact students who are struggling and have been reported by their instructor. Early intervention is key. Faculty and advisers work with students in getting them on track to success.
