The mission of Eastfield 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.

At the heart of the Eastfield Advising is our team of experienced and professional advisors who are here to provide academic and career advising in a comfortable and cooperative setting.

Our students receive personal attention as they are guided through their first and second year. Our advisors assist students in creating a personalized plan to help them discover their interests, goals, and talents and to find an academic path that's right for them.

The Eastfield Advising Office is here to ensure that our students are academically successful. Please browse our website by using the links to the left to find out more about us and helping students.
