Staff advisors are on campus and available throughout the academic year. Take advantage and schedule regular meetings with your academic advisor during the semester.

Remember to bring a copy of your degree audit and sequence chart / course guide with you to your advising meeting.

Academic Advising appointments are held in private but are not confidential. If you wish to schedule a confidential meeting with a counselor, CCA offers free Counseling Services for current students (see Counseling Services for details).

During winter or summer breaks

Academic advisors are available during winter and summer breaks by appointment only. They may not always be in their offices as they tend to other responsibilities.

Continuing students should contact their advisor to schedule an appointment.

Those who have just completed their first year may email askanadvisor@cca.edu.

During the add/drop period

Academic advisors are available for limited walk-in meetings during Add/Drop from 11 a.m. - 12 p.m. and 3-4 p.m., Monday through Friday. They are available all other business hours for abbreviated appoinments. Contact your advisor to schedule an appointment.

Add/Drop (January 12-23)
During Add/Drop, courses can be dropped and open courses can be added via WebAdvisor. See Add/Drop/Withdrawal for more information.

Note: Appointments can be made outside of walk-in office hours for assistance in adjusting registration. However, appointments to discuss academic-planning concerns outside of immediate add/drop issues should be made for later in the semester.
