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 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.
Changing Your Advisor
A good reason to change is when you switch to a new area of study. You are not automatically assigned a new advisor when you change your area of study. Just fill out a request to change advisor form.
