Polk State advisors provide guidance to help students choose the best and most effective means of achieving academic success and completing a degree. To ensure a successful academic pathway, after the online orientation is completed, the student must register to attend a pre-advising group session. During pre-advising, each student will receive a pre-advising syllabus and will register for the first semester of classes.

Academic advising is a collaborative exchange between a student and an academic advisor. The intent of this collaboration is to assist students in the development of meaningful educational goals that are consistent with personal interests, values, and abilities. Advisors help students achieve academic goals, access information and services, and make responsible decisions consistent with goals and degree requirements.

Registration for pre-advising sessions is available through the following links:
