  • Talk to an Advisor

    L&C's Academic Advisement provides individualized enrollment assistance to help you choose the program and courses that best fit your goals.

    Our professional, on-campus advisors will meet with you to discuss your education and career plans, past records, College Placement Test scores, college transcripts and other available resources. Then, you and your advisor will develop an educational outline adapted to your individual needs, abilities and interests. Academic advisors also provide prospective students with general information related to admissions at L&C.

    New Students

    If you are starting a degree program for the first time at Lewis and Clark, you will see an academic advisor during My L&C: New Student Orientation, and he or she will help you schedule your first semester of classes. Please see our New Student Checklist for what to do next.

    Returning Students

    Some returning students are required to see an advisor, but all are welcome to schedule an appointment or see an advisor during regular walk-in hours.

    Who is required to see an advisor?

    • Students registering for math or English for the first time or enrolling into a degree or certificate program. See New Student Checklist.
    • Students in a selective admissions program
    • International students
    • Returning students wishing to change their degree or program
    • Students on academic probation or returning from academic suspension.
    • Athletes (New students who have not completed college-level English or math and who will be participating in one of the National Junior College Athletic Association Division II sports are required to complete the Accuplacer College Placement test (CPT) before meeting with an Enrollment Center advisor.)
