What is career and education advising?

Education advising helps you determine the best education path for you. Education Advisors help you establish goals, create an action plan to achieve those goals, and identify the resources you need to ensure your success along the way.

How can a career and educational advisor help me?

Career and education advising sessions are designed to help you develop goals and action plans specific to your situation. Our Advisors can help you :

  • Identify your short and long-term educational goals.
  • Assess your skills and interests.
  • Create an Education Plan to meet your needs and goals.
  • Identify the education/training options that are best for you
  • Identify opportunities to receive credit for prior learning achieved
  • Navigate challenges once you are enrolled in an educational course or program so that you can meet your goals
Why is Career and Education Advising important?

Good education decision making requires that you take many factors like work and family demands, time, location, and cost into account. Career and education advising provides you — even if you have a good idea of your goals — with a way to make sure that you have taken these factors into account and set realistic short-term and long-term education goals.  Career and Education advising can also help you be sure that you’ve taken all of the many education options available today into account and chosen the course, program and provider that is right for you.
