HELPING STUDENTS MEET THEIR GOALS
HELPS YOU SET A SOLID
Advisement Program is a three-tiered service that assists students
in planning their academic endeavors and exploring their career goals
and options. Students first meet with the Admissions Counselor,
who helps them explore career options at Our Lady of the Lake College.
Second, the Advising Coordinator contacts students and assigns a faculty
advisor to each. Faculty advisors, the third tier of the program,
work closely with students to facilitate academic planning and goal
achievement. They assist with the selection of curriculum and
courses; scheduling of classes; exploration of educational opportunities
and career goals; and identification of resources for academic and
