Degree Requirements

Advisors provide students with information regarding the specific degree and general education requirements of more than 100 academic majors offered through St. Louis Community College.

Graduation Checks

Advisors are available to evaluate students’ academic course histories to determine whether or not they are eligible to graduate. See Preparing for Graduation for more information.

Student Referrals

Advisors make referrals for students to a variety of the college’s support services (e.g. tutoring, personal counseling, career counseling, the Access office, and others).

Transfer Advising

Whether a student intends to pursue an associate degree, the 42-credit-hour General Education curriculum, or select a course of study specific to their intended major, they should work with STLCC's experienced advisors and their transfer institution to ensure their credits will transfer. Available resources include transfer guides for several colleges and universities, as well as a transfer planning workbook to guide students through the transfer process.
