At Roane State, academic advising is a shared responsibility of the student, Success Coach and the Faculty Advisor.
All students entering Roane State will be assigned a Success Coach from the Student Enrollment Division who will assist them with academic advising/registration throughout their first 1-2 semesters at Roane State. After the student demonstrates academic success, he/she is transitioned to a faculty advisor who will mentor the student in the chosen career field. The faculty advisor works closely with the student in continuing his/her educational goals and assists with a plan for completing these goals. Students can view the name of their Success Coach or Faculty Advisor through their RaiderNet account.
Faculty advisor assignments may change if a student changes his/her major or if the faculty member is no longer able to serve as an advisor.
All students are encouraged to meet with their faculty advisor at least once a year. Not all RSCC locations have full-time faculty advisors for each major. Each student needs to contact his/her advisor to schedule an appointment well in advance of registration time periods and get an individualized PIN number to register for the upcoming term. A student who has completed 30 credit hours towards an Associate Degree or half of the coursework for a certificate is required to meet with his/her designated advisor to plan for graduation and to complete the Application for Graduation.
