Academic Advising

The Holland Academic Success Center helps those students unsure of their academic major and career directions to select appropriate classes and explore career alternatives. Each undeclared student will be assigned an academic adviser by the Advising Center. Students who have a major but are not sure about their decision may elect to visit with one of the undeclared advisers about choices open to them.
