Advising Mission and Statements
The NC Community College System recognizes that effective academic advising is at the core of student success. Academic advising is a collaborative process which assists students in the clarification of career goals and development of educational plans to realize those goals. Academic advising maximizes individual potential by
- Providing integrated and targeted supports and interventions when they are most effective.
- Aiding student’s progress through programs that lead to valuable credentials, without unnecessary detours.
- Assisting students in making informed decisions which result in understanding the requirements and processes to succeed.

Advising is an essential part of the North Carolina Community College student experience. Quality advising provides a holistic approach that teaches students to identify and achieve their personal, educational, and career goals. Quality advising is an ongoing, collaborative process between students and well-trained advisors whereby students are connected with appropriate resources and equipped to become confident, responsible, and reflective learners. Quality advising is fostered through institutional support for the onboarding and continuous development of advising personnel and for the access to appropriate advising resources.
Cape Fear Community College is committed to providing effective academic and career advising to all students. Our advisors help students make informed decisions ensuring that all students, regardless of race, color, national origin, sex (including pregnancy and sexual orientation), gender (including gender identity and status as a transgender or transsexual individual), disability, religion, age, genetic information, veteran status, disability or any other status are provided the same level of service and information about the academic programs and opportunities available at CFCC. To support the success of students with unique circumstances, we use the Aviso (Watermark) system to make referrals to other support services such as the Veterans Center, the Nixon Leaders Center, Counseling, Student Accessibility Services, the Learning Lab, etc.
