Academic Advisors help students select the courses that meet a student’s educational goals. Academic Advisors can approvecourses and help students plan for graduation and transfer from Brookdale. They can also show students how to register online for future semesters using the Student Planning tool. Students may not need to obtain course approvals each term.
Students may walk in to the second floor of the CAR Building and the Associates will direct you to an Advisor for your academic advising needs. Advisors operate on a walk-in basis so there are no scheduled appointments. Students should come in to see an Advisor early in the registration process, wait times typically get longer leading up to the first day of a term.
