What is advising and why is it in important?

Advising offers students an opportunity to identify an academic pathway, utilizing an advising syllabus, to promote the completion of their educational goals.  Students that utilize advising graduate faster, spend less time and money on courses that are not needed, and are more engaged in the college experience. 
Check out the advising syllabus at SPC to equip yourself with various policies, procedures, and resources. 

What is an INSTITUTE at St. Philip's College?

We’ve organized all our programs and courses into six Alamo Institutes that match students’ areas of interest with career goals giving you a clear path to the career goal you have in mind. It’s designed to help you take control of planning for your future. This new approach will save you time by guiding you to take only the courses you need, either to be job-ready when you graduate from one of the Alamo Colleges or to transfer to a university. It also saves you money, because you don’t pay for courses you don’t need or take more credit hours than you need to graduate or transfer.  

Take a peek at what the Institutes are all about. 


Post Assessment Advising and Refresher Course

Post assessment advising occurs with a certified advisor.  This assessment provides the student the opportunity to identify their options for retesting, refreshers, and/or registration based upon their educational pathway. At the time of Post Assessment Advising, students will be required to register for New Student Orientation.

A Refresher Course will be required for students that have placed into a developmental course based on their TSI assessment results. Refresher courses are at no cost and provide a second opportunity to move into a higher developmental course or a college-level course.
