Winter Quarter 2023 (Beginning Jan. 2nd - March 20th):

Virtual Drop-in Advising

Join Online Drop-ins

During these 15-minute sessions, we can help:

  • Connect you with campus resources
  • Briefly go over Degree Audits

Zoom is an application that you can use to video call and share screens with your advisor. You can sign up and download Zoom.

If you schedule a Zoom appointment with your advisor via Starfish, you will receive a notification or email with the link. When your appointment time arrives, just open Zoom and click that link or enter that “Meeting ID number” into Zoom

Advising Appointments

In addition to drop-in, we also offer 30-minute advising appointments over the phone, through Zoom, or in person in the Advising and Career Services Center. We strongly recommend an appointment if you have questions about degree completion, requirements for your major, long-range planning, or need help picking classes.

You can schedule an advising appointment through advising appointment through Starfish, by calling us at 206-934-4068, or by emailing AdvisorCentral@seattlecolleges.edu. For phone calls and emails, please remember to include your name, ctcLink ID Number (EMPLID), and your advisor's name, if known.

Zoom is an application that you can use to video call and share screens with your advisor. You can sign up and download Zoom.

If you schedule a Zoom appointment with your advisor, the advisor will send a Zoom meeting invitation to your email. When your appointment time arrives, just open Zoom and click that link or enter that “Meeting ID number” into Zoom.

When you schedule a phone appointment, please provide us with the phone number you would like us to call you at. When your appointment time arrives, your advisor will call that phone number.

Advisor Central Email Service

You can also reach us via email at AdvisorCentral@seattlecolleges.edu.

Our advisors actively respond to this inbox, so this is a great way to reach us with quick questions that don’t require a full 30-minute appointment.

We recommend emailing us rather than scheduling an appointment in the following situations:

  • You need an advisor’s signature on a form
  • You need an advisor to confirm that you meet the prerequisites to register for a course
  • You need an entry code to register online
  • You have a quick, general question about the school or degree requirements
  • You need to be academically approved for one of Seattle Central’s Allied Health, Culinary, or Creative Academy programs
  • You are having problems with registering for classes
