Your Roadmap to Success

Our academic advisors are committed to helping you establish a clear roadmap to achieve your goals. Academic advisors are partners in the process and help you create a plan designed around your schedule. Advisors can help you explore programs and careers, learn more about BTC policies and procedures, and refer you to college and community resources to support you throughout your education.

You will meet with your academic advisor for the first time when you attend an Advising, Registration, and Onboarding (ARO) Session. We encourage you to meet with your assigned advisor at least once per semester.

Academic advisors will help guide you in making informed choices about degree requirements and creating a pathway for success. They can help clarify college policies and procedures and refer you to campus and community resources as necessary.
