Academic Advising

All students are assigned a faculty or staff advisor that will provide support and guidance throughout their time as an RCC student. Students are assigned their advisor after they complete new student orientation and register for their first semester of classes. Academic advisors help students make informed decisions about their program of study and potential career, which will enable students to create a viable plan to meet their academic and career goals. Topics usually covered in the advising process include:

  • Student’s program of study
  • Potential career resulting from the program
  • Courses needed to complete the program
  • Timeline to graduation
  • Time management
  • Course registration

For assistance, students should contact their advisor by email or phone to schedule an appointment. Students will find their advisor’s contact information by logging into  Aviso.  Students should also contact their advisor for help with academic issues including the following: 

  • Changing program of study
  • Adding or dropping a course
  • Accessing RCC’s campus resources
