Departments » College Advising Center


The College Advising Center provides all undergraduate students with information, guidance, and support to create and implement an integrated educational and professional plan in the arts and media fields. Students may walk in during regular business hours and meet with the first available advisor. College Advisors also see undergraduate students for scheduled appointments, available through the “Make Appointments” tab in Oasis. Find us on Facebook for constant updates: facebook.com/ColumbiaCAC.
