Advising options now available:  

MAP Sessions for first-year students: 

During the months of October and November, the AAC requires all First-Years to attend a MAP (My Academic Plan) Session to learn more about the academic tools needed to create their own academic plan and register for Interterm and Spring 2022 courses. Attending a MAP session and virtual walk-in visit are required before scheduling an appointment in our center. Most registration/scheduling questions are able to be answered in a MAP Session, and time is allotted in each session for individual questions. Learn more about MAP sessions and sign up for your MAP session here
