The Transfer Advising Center’s mission is to empower and encourage students to become self-directed learners by developing an educational plan that is consistent with their academic, personal, and professional goals. This integrated student-centered partnership of mentoring and advising will assist students to make a successful transition to a four-year university as we provide accurate and timely academic resources, materials and information.

Meet Our Advisors

Alyson Jordan has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies from Wingate University. Since she began working at Gaston College in 2011, Alyson has worked solely with transfer students and faculty members. She is the resident transfer graduation expert, aside from the Dean of Arts and Sciences. She believes her role as a Transfer Advisor is quite fitting, considering her high school guidance counselor gave her an award because she applied to more universities than any other student in her graduating class. Alyson understands indecisiveness and strives to encourage students as they pursue their dreams.

Sherri Chavis has a Masters of Arts degree in Professional Counseling from Liberty University. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor and worked in private practice before coming to Gaston College. She currently advises students in the Transfer Advising Center and teaches Human Services courses at Gaston College. She is passionate about guiding students on their educational journey from the time they step onto the campus until they transfer to the college of their choice.  She also works with students to develop time management skills that can help them juggle study time, personal time, and work schedules.
