Academic Advising

Academic Advising Marquee

This is a big step, but you don’t have to take it alone.

Some students have their hearts set on a certain path, some aren’t sure which direction to go, and others might fall somewhere in between. For over 60 years, we have been working with students to find an educational path that leads them to a life-changing career. Our Advisors and Faculty can help take your passion and turn it into a profession.

Not sure where to start or thinking of changing majors? Attend an Information Session or Application Workshop and get all the info you need.

The Pre-Professional Nursing Program has minimum requirements and eligibility in order to declare the major. Visit the Prerequisites and Pre-Nursing page to learn more. Students unable to meet the Pre-Nursing requirements are encouraged to with the Pre-Health Advising Center for advising until they are eligible to declare Pre-Nursing or apply to the BSN program.

Additional questions can be sent to or you can call 520-626-3808.
