Every BCC student enrolled in a degree program is assigned an academic advisor who assists in course selection and offers general information concerning the student's academic life. 

Each semester, during a designated registration period, students meet with their advisors and register for the next semester. Students are encouraged to see their advisor as often as necessary to make certain they are taking courses appropriate for their academic and career plans. The advisor should also be consulted before students add or drop courses or change a program of study.

Students may check their WebAdvisor account, or with the Academic Advising Center or Registrar's Office, early in their first semester to learn the name of their academic advisor. Usually students have the same advisor throughout their education at BCC. However, students may change their advisor through the Academic Advising Center.

Students should monitor their own academic progress. Descriptions of specific courses are in the college catalog, as are program descriptions which list specific course requirements for each academic program. Program descriptions for new programs not listed in the catalog are available in the Registrar's Office and Academic Advising Center. Students can check their degree audit using their WebAdvisor account to track progress toward program completion.
