Advising Center

SSC Advising
Advising is a partnership that maximizes the individual potential of students.

The SSC's Advising Center provides information, tools, and resources to help Jones students make informed decisions about academic and career plans.

Proper planning and decision making help college students to achieve their academic, career, and life goals.

Academic advisors assist students in
(1) short-range course selection and
(2) long-range course planning for degree attainment.

The SSC's Advising Center is an excellent resource for important career information too. The links below offer convenient access to valuable information for Jones students.
