About Us

The Islander Advising Center serves students entering Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi from orientation through 45 credit hours. Students are provided ongoing support and assistance during their transition to college. Students build a strong foundation of support and success to ensure a smooth transition to the appropriate college advising center after completing 45 credits.
Academic Advising is a process where students and their advisors work together as partners in developing and meeting academic, career, and personal goals.
Students receive support in the following ways:
  • selecting courses and registering
  • understanding university policies and curriculum
  • developing academic, life, and career goals
  • identifying values, interests, and abilities
  • developing decision-making skills and accepting responsibility
  • making use of campus resources
  • understanding the value of a college education
  • developing self-advocacy skills
