Types of Advisors

Shoreline offers two types of advisors that you can take advantage of one by one or all at once.

  • General advisors - These people have general, foundational knowledge about how to complete a degree or certificate and prepare for university transfer. Some of these advisors have specialized knowledge of programs that provide unique services, for example veterans, online, or international students.
  • Department advisors - These are instructional faculty who have specialized knowledge about a specific area of study or subject, like biology or CNC machining. You can find the advisor for your program on the degree planning guide.
