Academic Advising

Academic advising is one of the most critical components of student success at Wake Tech. Advisors answer questions, provide valuable information about programs of study and guide students in setting academic goals, selecting courses and making sure they're ready for registration.

Advising is an interactive partnership between student and advisor that supports the student's growth and development. The interactive process helps students identify their interests, skills and abilities, allowing the advisor to customize an education plan for each student’s academic and career goals. Advisors also can help students develop the skills, attitudes, discipline and understanding needed to ensure progress through their studies to earn a degree, diploma or certificate.

Meet your Care Team

Wake Tech uses a case management care team model for advising, providing each student with an assigned team of advisors and support staff. To meet with an advisor, find the team that most closely related to your program of study or intended major.

Special advising situations

Dual-enrollment high school students

Both newly admitted and continuing Career & College Promise students can meet virtually with special CCP advisors.

Wake Tech staff assigned to four affiliated early college high schools provide advising assistance to students who attend those programs.

Visiting students

Visiting students are not assigned a specific academic advisor, but they are always welcome to drop in to the advising offices on Southern Wake or Scott Northern Wake campuses or sign up for a virtual advising appointment.
