The Center for Advising & Academic Success’ (CAAS) educational programming is built on principles, and hence utilizes tools, that empower students to make informed decisions as they mature into independent learners.  Committed to student success from entry through graduation, we strive to ensure each student has the best opportunity to persist and graduate.  Ensuring our utilization of advising best practices, we extend support to our faculty throughout their advisor development.  Here professional advisors provide support to CSI’s undergraduate academic learning to newly matriculated, continuing undeclared, and to Associate Degree Liberal Arts students on general education requirements, major and minor selection, and academic tools and policies.

We are pleased to be able to assist our academic community during your educational endeavors and we look forward to witnessing your academic success.
