All WCC students are assigned an ACA Advisor and a Faculty Mentor upon admission to the College.
ACA Advisors help new students successfully transition to college. They will help you identify or clarify your career interests; create an academic plan to help you reach your goals; recommend academic and campus resources; answer questions about your degree; encourage you to build relationships with peers, staff, and faculty; and serve as an important source of support all the way to graduation. ACA Advisors make sure new students get the best possible start.
During your first term at WCC, your ACA Advisor will help you develop a clear academic plan – a customized road map of all courses required for your degree, diploma, or certificate program – that will be used for class selection throughout your enrollment. Building this road map helps students stay on track to complete academic requirements, graduate, and move forward toward their goals.
Faculty Mentors provide information about job opportunities within a student’s career and/or assist transfer students as they navigate their best path to a university. Faculty Mentors make sure graduating students understand their next step.
