Pathways Advising

Welcome to Pathways Advising.

Once students have completed all admissions steps, Pathways Advisors are available to assist in navigating the final steps to enrollment.

All new students who have never attended college must meet with a Pathways Advisor to discuss their certificate or degree plan, test results, course selection, and any other academic advising questions. Returning ACC and transfer students are encouraged but not required to meet with a Pathways Advisor.

For general advising questions and registration concerns click here to chat with a member of the advising team or send us an email to ACC student email is required.
