Advising is as important to your academic success as attending classes and excelling in your studies.  Working with the student, the academic advisor helps students identify their intellectual pursuits inside the classroom and beyond.  Given that advisors are committed to their students’ success, students are expected to be responsible for their education.  Click below either Justice Studies Advising or Psychology Advising to find contact information for your advisor.

COJJP Advising

The COJJP is launching a college-wide one-stop-shop office where students can come for academic advising, and assistance with financial, personal, and other challenges.  This will enable the college to better serve our students as the advising team will enhance students’ academic experience and holistic development through academic advising and innovative educational programming. With this new process, you can talk with your academic advisor about the following: 1) assisting with semester course advising and planning; 2) making substitutions for your prerequisite or program courses; discussing transfer/abroad credit evaluations; 3) figuring out how best to academically prepare yourself for graduate school; and, 4) exploring how to address academic difficulties in a timely manner. The COJJP Dean’s Office will be advising all students except seniors.

Seniors will be advised by their department so contact Mrs. Sandy Siegmund in the Department of Justice Studies (936.261.5234/ or Mrs. Mokeitha Williams in the Department of Psychology (936.261.5263/
