Information About Advising

NOTE: Due to COVID-19, all advising staff are working remotely and do not have access to office phone lines. The fastest way to reach an advisor is through email.

We also encourage you to download the Navigate mobile app where you can connect with college resources and schedule appointments with your advisor.

All students entering college for the first time are required to meet with an advisor. Advising  sessions are scheduled after you have completed TSI requirements.

To help you stay on track, download the Navigate mobile app. It’s like having a personal advisor on call 24/7, from orientation through to graduation.

All students are encouraged to build a professional relationship with an academic advisor to promote your academic success. 

Your advisor can help you:

  • Complete the registration process
  • Choose a career path that matches your program of study and degree or certificate
  • Select a career path that works for your four-year college of choice
  • Connect to other campus resources
  • Learn skills including time management, critical thinking and decision-making
  • Create a plan for raising your GPA if you are on scholastic probation. Read the catalog for more information about scholastic probation/suspension. Learn about the probation policies at each of the colleges of DCCCD.

Meeting With an Advisor

Academic advisors are available to meet with you throughout the year — not just at registration time.

Please contact us if you have any questions.

Withdrawing From Courses: Stop Before You Drop

Under Texas law (TEC Section 51.907), if you drop too many classes without having an acceptable reason, your GPA and financial aid could be affected. Be sure you understand how this law may affect you before you drop a class.

The law applies to students who enroll in a Texas public institution of higher education (including a college in the DCCCD system) for the first time in fall 2007 or later. Under this law, you may not drop more than six classes without an acceptable reason during your entire undergraduate career without penalty.

For more information, please see Dropping a Course or Withdrawing from College in the catalog or read Facts About Dropping Classes. Your academic advisor can also answer questions about this law and how it may affect you.
