The purpose of advising is to provide students with the information, guidance, and support they need to capitalize on L&C opportunities and services, succeed in their coursework, graduate in a timely manner, and begin purposeful lives after graduation. Although students are ultimately responsible for their education and the completion of their degree, L&C provides multiple types of academic advising resources to help facilitate a successful and engaging college experience for each student.
The College Advising Center
The LC College Advising Center team consists of seven members who are dedicated to helping students and faculty achieve their goals.
