Student Success Guide: Find Your Campus Resource

Find Your Resource


Academic Mentoring is a unique, academic control-enhancing process that is organized around a set of questions relating to educational milestones, and builds upon answers considered in previous terms to help students acquire skills and attitudes that promote their intellectual and personal development. Students confer with Academic Mentors on key questions and challenges that shape their educational experiences, from adjusting to college life to choosing a major, defining and fulfilling educational goals, and transitioning toward graduate education or professional practice.


Academic Advising provides individual guidance in course selection, schedule planning, and graduation checks prior to registration each semester.


The One Stop @ Otis College offers a central location for Academic Advising, Financial Aid, Registration, and Student Accounts services, information, and resources.
