Academic Advisement

Transfer/Adult Students

Before Classes Begin
After acceptance, transfer and adult students need to go through the advisement & course selection process to identify appropriate courses and plan a realistic schedule. For first-time students, advisement will occur during one of several transfer student orientation programs called Navigate Armstrong, which are designed specifically for transfer and nontraditional students.
