Frequently Asked Questions

Is academic advising required?

Yes, and here's why: Students who receive more individual academic advising are more likely to select the correct classes in the right sequence as well as move from undecided to enrolled in and committed to a program. Advising can also prevent students from enrolling in courses not required of them and reduce tuition costs associated with those courses. Requiring academic advising ensures we are doing all we can to save you time and money and help you attain your educational goals.

How is this different from counseling?

In addition to academic advising, Mid-State also provides access to optional counseling services provided by student success counselors. Counseling is there to support you in a variety of ways not addressed in academic advising and is available by appointment at each campus location.
