The goal of academic advising is to assist students with developing an educational plan and goals. The student carries the ultimate responsibility for making decisions about life goals and educational plans. Our Counselors/Academic Advisors are to act as a resource of information to achieve those goals.
Faculty Advisors are professors who teach in the field you are majoring in. Faculty Advisors are not available during the summer months. You may contact the Counseling Department for assistance during this time.
Counselors/Academic Advisors offer academic advising for all degrees and certificates at Eastern Arizona College.
