2019-2020 Catalog

Academic Advising

Upon enrollment, all students are assigned an academic advisor. Students with declared majors are assigned to a faculty advisor in their major department. Students who have not declared a major (Non Declared students) are advised by the registrar. ­Advisors work with students to decide on a plan of study, complete paperwork for transferring courses to SKC, and to complete graduation applications. ­Advisors also refer students to campus resources and work with students to make sure that any additional program requirements are completed. Students should expect to meet with their advisor prior to each academic quarter, as the advisor’s signature is required for registration each quarter. Academic Advisors should be contacted before withdrawing from any course, as there may be consequences for the students’ plan of study. Students may also consult with their academic advisor if they have questions about their academic progress or career plans.

While faculty advisors provide advice and guidance, students are ultimately responsible for their own academic progress, including following the curriculum plan as outlined in the SKC Catalog. Students who do not follow the curriculum plan may not be able to complete their degree program in the expected length of time and may need more time to complete requirements for graduation. As explained in the SKC ­Student Handbook, SKC places full responsibility upon the student for registering for the proper courses and fulfilling all requirements for a degree as set forth in the catalog.
