All students at LaGuardia Community College work with academic advisors to write their own futures. Academic advisors will review your degree requirements and academic progress to help you decide which courses will best serve your educational and career goals.
There are four primary advising groups at the College. The majority of students will work with advisors or counselors in these four areas, depending on where they are in their academic journey. Generally speaking, Educational Planners prepare and advise students when they first arrive at the College; Counselors conduct freshmen seminars in students' first semesters (and advise readmitted and probationary students) and First Year Academy Coordinators discuss students' current academic progress, review degree requirements, and help students decide on courses to select for their second semester and beyond. Finally, Academic Advising Coordinators work with faculty to ensure that students who have completed their basic skills and at least 30 credits round out their academic and career planning and prepare for transfer.
In addition, there are several "Special Programs" on campus that provide a case management approach to guiding students through their LaGuardia experience. These programs generally advise students from the day they arrive until the day they graduate.
