25 August 2014 By PPC Blogger

advisingAt a college level, advising services are some of the most underutilized services available to students. At Pioneer Pacific, we strive to encourage this relationship to be used at it’s fullest. So, what exactly is an academic advisor and how can you be sure you make the most of this relationship?

Who: Academic advisors are the backbone of a department. At Pioneer Pacific, the relationship with these people begins prior to admission. Our Admissions Officers are focused on ensuring that Pioneer Pacific is the best fit for every student. Once the decision has been made to apply, the specialists will help guide prospective students through the admissions process.

Once a student has been accepted to their chosen program at Pioneer Pacific, a Program Director is assigned to them that will help guide the rest of the college process. Program directors are experts in their area allowing them to offer accurate information to students in an effort to guide them through the program as quickly and successfully as possible.

What: Program Directors are primarily a stepping stone into a chosen program, working with students to finalize their college plan and ensuring they stay on track during their time at Pioneer Pacific College. The student/advisor relationship can be an invaluable opportunity, one in which guidance is provided, advice given and general support is taken seriously. Every college experience is different. From an unexpected illness to financial challenges, life happens and therefore the course must be adjusted to set each student, no matter their situation, up for success. Program Directors are available to assist with these challenges and adjustments but also for everyday help, from getting involved in related student groups to networking towards a career in a chose industry, Program Directors are focused on student success.

Where: Guidance can be sought at any one of the Pioneer Pacific Campus locations.

When: At Pioneer Pacific, we believe the student/advisor relationship is best served when it’s begun at acceptance, allowing a relationship to grow beginning at acceptance all the way through graduation.

Why: The reasons to build an student/advisor relationship are numerous.
Guidance: These people are not only experts in the program and college but can also provide valuable insights into career options and further opportunities.
Networking: Advisors can also help guide your job hunt. They have industry connections and can help by sharing those connections with you.
3rd Party Opinions: Instead of your family and friends helping to guide your college experience, advisors can provide unbiased information about the program, career viability and outlook without the emotional side of the equation.

How: At Pioneer Pacific, it’s easy to get in touch with an Admissions Officer or Program Director, not matter what part of your educational experience you’re at. A strict open door policy is enforced, meaning you can always swing by for a chat or set up an appointment. Find contact information for your campus on our website.
