How do I know who my adviser is?
Who your adviser is depends on what your major is. Advisers are assigned to you when you either fill out your application for admission or change your major. Click here for a list
(Word doc). We can look up the assigned faculty advisers for majors and give you the contact information for that person, but make sure your correct major is listed in your file at Student Records. You can also access your adviser’s name in your own EaglesEye account. The Advising Center advisers are the advisers for all new students (people who will be attending LCCC for the first time) and for all general studies majors (students majoring in other general studies majors, such as general studies in social sciences, should see the appropriate adviser within that division).
I want to start attending LCCC in the fall/spring/summer semester. When do I make an appointment with an adviser?
It’s best to make your appointment after you have submitted your application for admission and completed your assessment tests (or once we’ve received your ACT scores or college transcripts), so that an adviser can speak to you more concretely about specific classes. Without that information, an adviser cannot help you decide exactly what you need to take.I was a student here years ago and am coming back. Who do I need to see?
You are welcome to start with an adviser in our center, but we may send you on to your program area adviser depending on how many credits you have and whether we feel we can adequately answer your questions.I’m trying to register online and it won’t let me. Why?
It could be a couple of things: either you are a first-time student at LCCC or you have some kind of other hold on your file (academic probation/suspension, owe money, etc). An adviser can look in your file to see what the hold is, and if it’s a first-time student or probation/suspension, we can advise you and help you get registered. All other holds must be handled by that specific office.I’m trying to drop a class online and it won’t let me. Why?
You can only drop a class online prior to the last day of registration for a semester (typically, the second day after classes begin). After that, you must either do it in person or by sending an e-mail or fax requesting the drop.Can you tell me which of my LCCC classes will transfer to UW (CSU, Arizona State, etc)?
There are more than 4,000 institutions of higher education in the United States, so it’s impossible for us to know the transfer policies and standards for all of them. It’s always up to the college to which you’re transferring to decide what they’ll take. The best thing to do is work backwards: Find out what your college requires and then compare it to what we have here. We can help you decipher some of the information and help you connect to someone at the new college.
Can I see an adviser? I want to drop (or add) a class.
You don’t need an adviser’s permission to drop a class (unless you are an athlete), but it’s a good idea to check with financial aid first to see if it will affect your aid. You don’t need permission to add a class unless it’s after the last day to register for the semester, in which case you’ll need to get the instructor’s permission. In all cases, students are responsible for being aware of college deadlines.
Can I register over the phone?
We will have an adviser call you back and advise you over the phone, and after that, you should be able to register online. If you live in the LCCC service area (Laramie County, Albany County) you will be asked to do your advising in person.
For students appealing the suspension of financial aid, what does an advisor need to provide for an "academic plan"?
All advisors need to do is sign a copy of the student's degree audit. Students can either print out the degree audits from their own EaglesEye accounts, or advisors can print them from their EaglesEye accounts if the student is listed as an advisee.
