What Is Academic Advising?

Academic advising is an interactive process between you, the student, and your advisor. You share information about your interests, skills, and abilities so that your advisor can help you set academic goals and develop an education plan for reaching those goals. Academic advising is one of the most critical components of student success.

  • Academic Success Counseling
    Academic Advisors assist you in identifying, planning, and achieving your academic goals. By facilitating the development of skills, attitudes, discipline, and understanding, advisors help to ensure your progress toward the completion of your coursework and your program of study. Wake Tech is committed to student success, providing academic success workshops and individual counseling sessions to help you develop a customized action plan for future success.
  • First Year Experience (FYE)
    Wake Tech’s FYE supports new students who have tested into two developmental courses (ex. DRE, DMA). Each FYE student is assigned an Academic Advisor who helps them create a personal roadmap to graduation and success based on needs, interests, and goals.
