The Advising Center is the main Academic Advising hub for Great Bay Community College. The center is staffed by professional advisors and works with all incoming New Students, Liberal Arts majors, Liberal Arts/Pre-Veterinary Technology majors, Liberal Arts/Pre-Surgical Technology majors, and Non-Matriculated students. In addition to these groups, the Advising Center also does specialized advising focusing on Transfer and Career Exploration, Suspension Recovery and Retention, and Portsmouth Naval Shipyard Outreach. Within all of these areas the Advisors work to build a collaborative relationship with students in order to develop concrete pathways to academic success both at GBCC and beyond.
The Advising Center is not just a place to pick classes.
The Advising Center team prides themselves on their open door policy. The center is open daily for student and faculty support; students can ask questions about, and get advice on, a wide variety of issues, receive post-testing counseling, book appointments, pick up important forms they may need, and use the computers to look up courses and transcripts.
