Ranger College provides academic advising to assist students with course selection, career choices, transferability of courses, and other pertinent information which will enable them to be successful in college. Students will meet with a faculty advisor or counselor prior to the beginning of each semester to assist them in progressing toward their educational goals. Students are also encouraged to meet with an advisor periodically throughout the semester to plan for the next semester and address any questions concerning the advisement process.

It is recommended that all students participate in the advisement process. First-time college students and students who are not TSI complete are required to meet with a faculty advisor to assist them with registration. Students transferring from another college or students planning to graduate in the current semester are required to meet with the Director of Counseling to ensure graduation requirements are being met.
