The Academic Advisement Experience at Delaware Technical Community College engages students and the campus community in collaborative and supportive advisement grounded in teaching and learning that empowers students to achieve their educational, professional, and life goals.
What is Academic Advising?
At Delaware Tech, academic advising is a resource to help you navigate your college experience, understand program and course options, connect to campus resources and activities, and identify, develop, and implement plans to successfully achieve your goals.
How do I get an advisor?
All students are assigned a program advisor when they apply to the College. Your advisor's name will be printed on your acceptance letter, but you can also find your advisor on your Student Schedule Bill or on Self-Service Banner, our online student records system. In addition to your assigned advisor, each campus has an advisement center, where advisors are available to meet with you.
When will I meet with an advisor?
Most students first meet with an advisor in the campus advisement center. Throughout your time as a student at Delaware Tech, you will schedule ongoing meetings with your advisor. New students are required to meet with their assigned advisor before they register for their second semester.
What’s My Student Educational Plan (SEP)?
A Student Educational Plan (SEP) is your customized roadmap to achieving your educational and career goals. It is your responsibility to work with your advisor to develop your SEP.
By meeting with your assigned advisor and advisors in the campus advisement center, you will develop your SEP. The first step is to work with an advisor to identify goals giving careful consideration to your interests, strengths, and challenges. Then, you and your advisor will develop specific strategies to work towards those goals. You and your advisor will continue to update your SEP as needed. Discuss with your advisor how often you should meet to review your SEP and remember to visit an advisor anytime you have questions, concerns, or need to make a change to your plan.
