Academic Pathways

All programs and majors are organized into eight advising pathways, each with their own advising specialist. Advising at CCD is based around a one-student, one-advisor model, meaning you will ideally meet with one academic advisor throughout your entire academic career at CCD. This strengthens that connection and serves as a single point of contact for your advising questions, general concerns, campus resources and success support.

New and transfer students are assigned an advisor based on your declared program or major within two weeks after each semester begins. The Academic Advising and Student Success Center on the first floor of the Confluence Building is the place to go to connect with academic advisors.
