Mission

In support of the Richland College mission, the mission of Richland College Academic Advising is to foster successful teaching and learning experiences. Academic advising engages students in developing academic pathways and educational plans for life-long learning.

  • An academic standing of "Good"
  • No restrictions, blocks, or holds on your student record
  • TSI statuses of complete, exempt, waived or have taken an approved TSI test in reading, writing, and math.  Students who have not met or passed TSI requirements should visit with an advisor before registering or dropping classes.
  • Valid email address

NOTE: Even though you meet eligibility requirements for registering online, you may not be able to register for all desired courses due to prerequisite requirements (http://econnect.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/62).
