Shortest distance to graduation? Advising.

The Petro Kulynych Student Advising Program is designed to pair students with an academic ACA advisor and a faculty mentor upon admission to the College. Students are assigned their ACA advisor through enrollment in the appropriate student success class where they create an academic plan to reach selected goals. Academic advisors support students as they select educational and career goals, plan semester coursework, and review progress toward graduation. Students are assigned a faculty mentor for their specific discipline. Faculty mentors guide students toward appropriate job opportunities within the student’s chosen program and career.

The Kulynych Advising Center is located in 211 Thompson Hall (building 3 on the campus map).
