Academic Advisement

The goal of advising at Lake Land College is to guide students to take the correct courses to achieve their academic goals and earn a degree and to have a seamless transfer experience. The College’s mandatory advisement program encourages the accomplishment of these goals. Academic counselors in Counseling Services advise new students for their first semester at the College. After initial enrollment, Lake Land College assigns a faculty advisor to each students who is seeking a certificate or degree from the College. Advisor assignment is based on student’s major. Students must seek advisement and course approval prior to registering each semester. Registration dates are based on sophomore and freshman status as determined by hours earned at Lake Land College, as well as degree seeking status.

Current students can refer to Student IRIS in the Laker Hub, “Registration” and then “Advisement Information” for the following:

  • Declared major and the opportunity to change it if it is incorrect
  • Assigned academic advisor (based on major) and their contact information
  • Earliest registration date
  • Blocks that could prevent registration
  • Resources to help prepare for advisement and graduation

Students should regularly check their Advisement Information page for pertinent advisement and registration information.
