Academic advising

Navigating your study path can be challenging. CISA Academic Advisors can provide guidance and support to help you achieve your academic goals.

Undergraduate academic advising

Academic advising support is crucial to achieving a high level of academic success. CISA advisors can assist you in selecting courses that meet your graduation requirements, as well as help you identify, clarify and achieve your academic goals. Our advising mission is to advocate for student success, retention and graduation through purposeful academic relationships and community building. 

We recommend that you meet with your advisor each semester before you register for your next semester’s classes.
