Carthage provides comprehensive advising services and support to all students. Professional advisors help students transition to college both socially and academically.
Carthage utilizes a holistic advising model. Student Success Advisors, faculty advisors, and Career Specialists work with students to discuss co-curricular and extracurricular activities, and create long- and short-term academic and career plans.
Student Success advising
All new students at Carthage are assigned a Student Success Advisor during New Student Registration. These advisors work with students through their first semester. They are responsible for each student’s academic advising needs, and are available for guidance in all areas of college life. Student Success Advisors are located in the Center for Student Success on the main level of the Todd Wehr Center at the south end of campus.
Meet the Student Success Advisors
Following their first semester, if a student has declared a major, they will be assigned a faculty advisor in their area(s) of study. Faculty advisors will guide students in course selection moving forward to ensure students meet the learning outcomes for their program of study and receive mentorship in their field.
All Carthage students will be assigned a Career Specialist through The Aspire Program, Carthage’s comprehensive four-year career development program.
