Center for Academic Advising and Student Success (CAAS)

Students virtually meet with Professional Academic Success Advisors (ASAs) through online platforms to discuss educational and career plans based on their guided pathway program of study/major. Students may schedule a virtual appointment with their assigned ASA anytime during the semester. Students are assigned an ASA within their first month of college and remain with their designated advisor until graduation. Students should check their AMSC email addresses frequently for pertinent information from CAAS and their designated ASA.
