Academic Advising is integral to Seattle Central Community Colleges mission and is important to your academic success. We encourage you to come to the Advising Center to discuss your educational plans and goals.
Once you have established yourself as a Seattle Central student, we strongly recommend that you meet with an advisor during non-registration periods (Week 3 through 7 of each quarter) to develop your academic plan. This will cut down on the amount of time you will have to wait to see an advisor. During quarterly registration periods, advisors can help solve technical issues with your on-line registration. They can also review transcripts from other schools to approve course pre-requisites that have not yet been officially evaluated and incorporated into your permanent record.
Advisors are also essential to START New Student Orientation and registration process, which is required for all new students at Seattle Central. Students will not be able to register for classes until they have completed an orientation. In most cases, a new students first contact with an advisor will be during START New Student Orientation.
