At Roane State, academic advising is a shared responsibility of the student, Success Coach and the Faculty Advisor.
First time degree-seeking students will be assigned a Student Success Coach from the Student Enrollment Department who will assist them with academic advising/registration throughout their first 24 credit hours earned at Roane State. Upon completion of 24 credit hours, each student will then be assigned to a faculty advisor to match the student's program of study. 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 Student Success Coach or Faculty Advisor through their RaiderNet account.
All other students (transfer, readmission, certificate) are assigned a faculty advisor during their first semester of attendance at Roane State. Advisors are assigned at the start of Fall and Spring semester. Faculty advisor assignments may change if a student changes his/her major or if the faculty advisor leaves the college. Prior to being assigned a faculty advisor, students are encouraged to seek assistance from the professional advising staff in the Advising Resource Center.
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. All sophomores are required to meet with their designated advisor to plan for graduation and to complete the Application for Graduation.
