The Comprehensive Advisor

The Comprehensive Advisor

Each student who is enrolled in the Learning Center foundational services for students with diagnosed disabilities will have the opportunity to meet with a Comprehensive Advisor on a weekly basis.Many of our students tell us the Comprehensive Advisor relationship is key to making the transition to college life; our first year students have described the Comprehensive Advisor as an “anchor.” 

The Comprehensive Advisor offers to work with students in the following ways:

  • Developing academic, organizational, and self-monitoring strategies
  • Discussing priorities and motivational outlook
  • Deciding about accommodations to be used for college classes
  • Self-Advocacy coaching to describe needed accommodations to faculty
  • Advising for academic schedules the first three semesters with preferential registration
  • Connecting to services within our program support system
  • Linking with other campus offices for extra-curricular referral and support
  • Processing the individual's transition to college and general functioning
