  • Serving as the point of contact between enrollment advisors and academic advisors to enable students to foster earlier degree completion.
  • Offering guidance to students on ways to obtain academic credit for college-level learning through a portfolio development course.
  • Instructing students on other options to earn credit by examination.
  • Providing guidance on the Accelerate into Master’s (AIM) programs.
