BRCC advisors are here to help students reach their educational and career goals. Advisors are available to guide students through degree completion by helping them understand college policies and procedures, navigate degree requirements, set career and academic goals, and select courses. Advisors are also an excellent resource for finding information and other services at BRCC that can assist students with achieving their educational goals. 

Academic advising is a shared responsibility between students, advisors & faculty. Together you and your advisor will set realistic goals, identify campus resources and support services, understand the requirements for your major, and develop a graduation plan. Ultimately, you will make important choices that will impact your success.

During this time, the advisors are working with students remotely via phone, email and zoom appointments. 

Ways to connect:

Note: During peak advising times only group advising may be available.  If you want individual advising services, it is a good idea to plan ahead.  

Preparing for Advising Appointments

In order to make the most of your advising time, take these steps:

Check your DegreeWorks program plan in LOLA, and review your program plan.  You can use DegreeWorks to get an idea of the courses you need, you can change your degree plan, or use the plan ahead feature.  By using DegreeWorks prior to your advising session, you will be able to have your questions ready in advance and get a better understanding of where you are in your academic plan.
