If you are new to the college, you can see an advisor in post-test advising after taking the ACCUPLACER assessment or after being exempted from testing (see the exemption requirements). During post-test advising, an advisor will review your program requirement sheet, interpret your placement scores, and help you select classes for your first quarter.
- Sign up for post-test advising either through the Testing Center or the Information Desk — no appointment necessary. See our New Student Checklist.
If you are a continuing student, make an appointment with either:
- An Academic Advisor who assists students with fulfilling their educational goals.
- By phone at 425.640.1458, or
- In person at the Information Desk, on the first floor of Lynnwood Hall.
- A Faculty Advisor who brings valuable expertise related to programs of study, courses, university programs,
and the job market. They also approve course substitutions and degree/certificate
- Make an appointment by phone at 425.640.1458, or
- In person at the Information Desk, on the first floor of Lynnwood Hall. You may also contact the faculty member directly. Visit the Faculty Advising page to see lists of professional technical and transfer faculty advisors.
Any student with a quick question for an advisor can:
- sign up to see an advisor during drop-in hours: Weekly drop-in hours are listed on the white board in Enrollment Services or can be found online. Sign up at the Information Desk counter 30 minutes in advance.
- Send an email to email@example.com.
All students are invited to use the Advising Resource Center on the first floor of Lynnwood Hall.
