Your Guides to Student Success
Everyone Gets One
Upon enrollment, students are automatically assigned an advisor.
To arrange a meeting with an advisor:
- Prospective students or new students who have not yet registered for courses for the upcoming quarter should call the Advising Office at (206) 546-4559 to schedule an appointment
- Current or returning students who have registered for classes should log into Starfish with your Shoreline Network Account username and password and schedule an appointment with your advisor
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.
