Academic advising

Maybe you know you’re ready for college. Perhaps you know exactly what you plan to study. Then again, maybe you don’t. Academic counselors at Tidewater Community College help you define and achieve your educational and professional goals.

We're here to help

Advisors can help address issues related to career decisions, academic difficulty, time management and other obstacles that can hinder student success. Plan to meet with an advisor at least once per semester, especially during your first few semesters at TCC and as you near graduation.

Academic advisors can help you:

  • complete your degree or certificate
  • consider possible careers and programs that might be a good fit
  • choose courses that will satisfy your degree or educational goals
  • address academic concerns or issues
  • transfer smoothly to another college
  • connect with TCC or other community resources to support your success
