No two transfer students are alike. That means that each of you have received different levels of care on the “advising” side of college. You may just have finished an all-you-can-eat buffet with your advisor one hour ago. Or you may know for a fact that you have an advisor, but you’ve never actually seen him or her.
At Corban, we do things a little different. You can expect to get exactly what you need from your advisor at Corban.
Corban’s academic advisors have an “open door” policy. It’s true! All advisors are expected to be available for students. Some advisors will share their cell phone number and encourage you to text with questions. Some will prefer weekly face-to-face conversations. Other advisors will serve as the gatekeeper to getting you into the right classes for graduation. Some will be all of those things.
At Corban, your advisor is there to advise and help you every step of the way to graduation.
I want to tell you a story. I, Jordan, am a graduate of Corban University (“Go Warriors!”), and I was not excited to meet with my advisor. I thought it was a formality that I didn’t really need. But then, I started to get really confused in one of my main classes for my degree. “Not to worry,” I thought. “I just need to spend more time studying.” Well I studied….hard. Still, I wasn’t getting anywhere!
Sheepishly, I decided to seek help and knocked on my professor’s door. He pushed his things aside and asked how he could help. As I was talking…the water works began. It was so humbling! But my professor stopped me, prayed with me, encouraged me, and then explained the processes I was hung up on.
Your advisor at Corban is not just there to get you to graduation. Although that is ultimately very important, your advisor at Corban is going to understand your faith, push you to advance, and walk alongside you.
Did you know at Corban, your academic advisor schedules your first semester at the college to ensure you’re in the right classes? None of this “lone wolf” business that gets so many transfers into courses they do not need. Your advisor will see what you need and get you into the right classes.
When new students deposit and confirm their enrollment at Corban, they are assigned an academic advisor who schedules their classes. Transfer students will not need to worry about registering. Also, advisors prefer that when you are on campus, the two of you meet in person to talk about your educational goals, life goals, and all facets of getting you to the finish line.
Corban’s advisors make it very difficult to not succeed in college or after graduation.
