About Us


Our mission is to help students explore, choose, advance, and achieve their educational goals by providing counsel and accurate, timely information, and by supporting advising campus-wide.

Student Services:

We're here to help you explore Humboldt's great academic programs, offer advice on general education and all-university requirements, and to assist you in building academic plans and semester schedules. In general, we're here to help you develop strategies for making excellent academic progress. Whether you are a newly admitted freshman, a student returning after an absence, or a nearly-graduated senior, you and your questions are welcome in the Advising Center.

Faculty/Staff Services:

Our staff is dedicated to advancing and supporting campus-wide advising. Activities include participating in the student led Humboldt Orientation Program, offering advising workshops for faculty advisors and department coordinators, attending department meetings, visiting classes, and coordinating with residence hall staff to offer schedule-building sessions. If you want to promote student success and you think we can help, let us know and count us in!
