[Cpcommunicator] Counseling and Advisement FAQ for faculty advisors and counselors

>From Office of Counseling and Advisement of Student Success Services


The registration season has proved to be a period when students heavily
seek advisement from student counselors, academic advisors and faculty
advisors. The following questions and answers contain information that
will be helpful during this busy time.  


Q: How can students change their program of study or declare a program?

A: Faculty advisors, program chairs, division directors, and student
counselors can submit a program change for a student. When instructors
identify students who need to declare a program or change their program,
they can: 


a) refer them to their faculty advisor 

b) refer them to the appropriate program chair/division director, or 

c) refer them to the Student Success desk at multi-campuses or
Counseling Office at Central Campus, Central High Bldg., Suite 212, to
schedule an appointment to meet with a student counselor.


Once the Program Admit/Change Form is completed and signed by both the
student and the authorized faculty member or student counselor, it is
turned in to the Office of Admissions and Registration for entry to the
student's academic record.


Q: I have a list of students to advise, but I don't know how they were
assigned to me. What process do students undergo to get a faculty

A: Here's how the process works for students:


Students who have never attended college before this semester

1.       meet with an academic advisor in Counseling and Advisement

2.       discuss educational goals and strategies for success

3.       select courses for the first semester

4.       are assigned a faculty advisor based on the student's program
of study


Students transferring to CPCC from other colleges/universities 

1.       make an appointment to meet with a student counselor by calling
704-330-6433 or 704-330-5013 

2.       meet with student counselor  

3.       discuss educational goals and strategies for success 

4.       review transfer credit to determine if placement tests are

5.       discuss how previous credit will apply to CPCC programs 

6.       are assigned faculty advisor based on student's program of


Note:  Depending on how much transfer credit the student has, the
student counselor may recommend courses for the first semester or may
refer the student immediately to his or her faculty advisor for course
recommendations for all subsequent semesters.


Note that students in A.A.S. programs work with their faculty advisors
until graduation. Students in College Transfer programs work with
faculty advisors until they have completed 30 hours. After 30 hours,
they work with academic advisors in the Transfer Resource Center or with
student counselors to prepare for graduation.     


Q: What is the Counselor/Faculty Liaison Program?

A: The liaison program links academic divisions with student counselors
to facilitate communications. Each division has a counseling partner who
serves as the primary contact for updates from the academic division
about new programs and curriculum changes. The counselor then passes the
information along to the rest of the counseling staff. The counselor
liaison also provides information to the faculty liaison about services
and policies that affect students in order to facilitate academic
advising and student success.
