The purpose of academic advising at South Arkansas Community College is to communicate the expectations of the College, to orient students to higher education, and to help students meet their career goals. All certificate and degree-seeking students will be assigned an academic advisor except those enrolled in three (3) hours or less. Advising is available online for students. After conferring with their advisors, students will register in courses consistent with their abilities and career choices. Advisors are available during their posted office hours and during registration.


Who Are My Advisors?

An academic advisor will be assigned to you during the admissions process. Students are asked to visit with their advisors (via phone, appointment, or e-mail) before attempting to register. Your advisor will help you select courses that meet graduation requirements in a timely and efficient manner. The program instructors in health, business, computers and technical programs serve as academic advisors for students enrolled in these programs. Students in the AA Degree program can select an advisor of their choice. Advisors are available during their posted office hours and during registration.


Academic Advising by Email 

You can email questions directly to an advisor at advisor(at)southark.edu. We will make every effort to respond as quickly as possible. Response time may vary during registration.
