What Services do we provide Students?

Academic Advising

Our Advising Center, located upstairs in the Jack Hunt Campus Center, is staffed with professional advisors and success coaches who specialize in helping students with first-year course selection, degree planning and helping them to make connections to our many college resources.  

All students with 0-23 earned credit hours at CCC are required to see an advisor in the Advising Center prior to a new semester registration period. (There are some exceptions: Students majoring in Cosmetology/Esthetics, Basic Law Enforcement, or Fire Protection will see an assigned faculty advisor. Early College High School students see Karen Sweezy and all CCP students work with Student Services.) Once a student reaches 24 credit hours at CCC they will be transitioned to an assigned faculty advisor. Advisor assignments are based on the student’s primary major/program of study.
