Students must meet with an Academic Advisor upon admission to COM to establish an academic degree plan. Advisors are assigned by program, and assist students with identifying and developing a plan to achieve their academic and career goals. Your advisor will also help you navigate through the college experience, and make referrals to campus resources to support your academic success. Continuing students are encouraged to meet with their Academic Advisor each semester through completion to ensure they are on the right path. Academic Advisors are located on the first floor of the Student Center Building. Appointments can be made on the Academic Advising webpage at www.com.edu/student-services/academic-advising to meet with your assigned advisor.
