Students at Labette Community College are assigned an advisor when they begin their college experience. Advisors assist students in the following ways:

  • Discuss education and career goals
  • Provide information about degrees, certificates, and concentrations
  • Provide referrals to other departments when needed
  • Assist with scheduling and course selection
  • Track progress towards goals
  • Provide information about transfer requirements

Faculty Advisors are assigned to students who have declared a particular major or degree.  These are individuals who either teach in the field of concentration or have received specialized training in the requirements of a particular program.

Academic Advisors are located in the Student Union and at Cherokee Center. The Admissions Director and Admissions Recruiter also serve as academic advisors. Academic advisors assist students who are

  • Entering college for the first time
  • Undecided about a major
  • Non-degree seeking
  • Majoring in general studies

Student Support Services is an academic support program helping disadvantaged college students find success. Currently enrolled LCC students qualify for Student Support Services by meeting one of the following criteria:

  • Be first generation college students
