Academic Advising for Current Students

 Academic advisors at Tidewater Community College help you define and stay on track to achieve your educational and professional goals.

Academic advisors can help address issues related to career decisions, academic difficulty, time management and other obstacles that can hinder your success at TCC.

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:

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