Academic Advising Center

Make the most of your time at CFCC.

Academic advisors help you develop a plan to reach your educational and career goals, select courses required to complete your degree, develop a transfer plan to a 4-year college or university, and change your major.

Visit the Advising Center

Students may schedule an appointment to meet with an advisor in-person or virtually by using the buttons below.

Whenever possible, we encourage you to schedule a time when you can come in person to our center. We’d love to meet you, and it will give you a chance to check out our campus.

Walk-ins (without an appointment) are welcome on a first-come, first-served basis. Please plan to arrive at least an hour before closure to ensure adequate time to meet with an advisor.
