What Is Academic Advising?

Academic advising is an interactive process between you, the student, and your academic 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 Advising
    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.
  • Health Sciences Academic Advising
    Admissions and Academic Advisors located at the Perry Health Sciences campus provide both admissions assistance and academic advising to all students who are interested in pursuing one of the Health Sciences programs offered at Wake Tech.  Our Admissions and Academic Advisors provide specialized educational advising for all pre-health sciences students. Many of the health sciences programs have limited enrollment capacity, additional program-specific requirements, and selective admissions processes.
