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 and Registration (AR) 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.

Appointments are highly recommended. You are welcome to stop in during drop-in hours for quick questions. Advisors hold advising events throughout the semester to connect with students. Check your student email account for updates.
