Advising Advising


Welcome to the home of the Saints Advising! We are the go-to resource to connect students with the many sources of support at SCCC that are essential for success. Academic advisors share knowledge and partner with students to help them reach their goals at SCCC and beyond.


A majority of students at SCCC have faculty advisors to help them navigate their chosen career path. Students that are undecided are typically advised by Student Success Center advisors.

Relate: The most successful advising experiences are built on relationships in which the student and advisor work together. Students can develop these relationships through regular conversations with advisors.

Explore: We also invite students to take a look at the many online resources; these materials provide important information regarding requirements, and outline programs and opportunities that can add great value to a student's SCCC experience. Becoming familar with their options will help students get even more from their meetings with advisors.
