First Appointment

This is your first scheduled appointment with Academic Advising creating the foundation for your personal education plan.  During the session you will discuss in detail your graduation requirements and how to be successful academically at CI.  Advisors will assist students in setting academic goals and referrals to appropriate campus resources.  Although Advisors are here to assist students, it is important to understand students are responsible for their academic career.
