Advising at Carthage provides comprehensive services and support to all incoming students. Professional advisors help students transition to college both socially and academically.
Advisors discuss co-curricular and extracurricular activities, and work with students to create long- and short-term academic and career plans.
All first year students at Carthage are assigned a First Year Advisor. First Year Advisors are responsible for each student’s academic advising needs, and are available for counseling in all areas of college life. Meet the First Year Advisors. First year advising is located in the Center for Student Success on the main level of the Todd Wehr Center at the south end of campus.
Sophomores, juniors and seniors who have declared a major are advised by a faculty advisor in that major. Students typically transition to faculty advisors at the end of their first year at Carthage.
