All students at LaGuardia Community College benefit from a comprehensive college-wide system of developmental academic advising. Through academic advising, students connect their educational and career goals. While the ultimate responsibility for decision-making rests with the students, academic advising is a valuable part of the College’s support network dedicated to helping students achieve their educational and career goals. Students are advised within their major by a cross-campus team that includes professional advisors, faculty and peer advisors who support them from admissions to graduation. Students work with advisors to discuss their current academic progress, review their assigned degree requirements, and develop their Graduation Plan.
Students in special programs – ASAP and College Discovery are encouraged to meet with an advisor in the program prior to the beginning of the registration period.
Students can prepare for advisement with a variety of tools available on the LaGuardia Website or the Student Portal, “My LaGuardia.” A review of the Degree Maps, DegreeWorks and CUNY First can help students understand degree requirements they have completed and those remaining. CUNYfirst will indicate when students are eligible to register for courses, any holds and to do items. This catalog, academic major website, and the College website offer additional information about major curricula, Pathways requirements, and academic policies.
