Student Advisors

RichmondCC is dedicated to ensuring that we provide students with all the necessary resources to meet their academic goals. Our faculty and staff are passionate about seeing students succeed in their education and career, and we do our best to steer them in the right direction with successful academic advising practices.

The advising process only works when both parties involved are engaged and contributing. With this in mind, we ask that students:

  • Actively participate in the advising relationship.
  • Respond to advisor outreach and be upfront about perceived obstacles to your success.
  • Proactively research and plan ways to reach your academic goals, and be open to sharing those goals with your advisors.
  • Be open to discussing how to research answers to your questions with advisors to learn ways to find information on your own.

Make sure you’re familiar with your specific program or course schedule and what classes you’ll need to graduate before meeting with your advisor.
