Academic advising is a shared process wherein you and your advisor work closely together throughout your college experience. Whether your plan is to take a few classes, transfer to another institution, or earn a degree at Gaston College, your advisor will work with you to provide academic advising, career guidance, and academic support services. The Academic Advising Centers embrace a holistic advising approach that supports teaching and learning.

The mission of the Academic Advising Centers is to assist students in connecting their educational goals with their career goals by developing a plan for academic success.

Academic Advisors provide timely, accurate information about academic and career opportunities and requirements, college policies and procedures, and seamless transfer pathways. Through frequent interaction, advisors engage students in an active role in their own academic planning. Academic planning is a shared responsibility between student and advisor.
