Academic Advising

Still undecided on a career path? No worries — Pierpont advisors are here to help. Your advisors will assist you in selecting a major that matches your skills and interests and will help you select courses that will get you to that diploma as quickly as possible.
Our Advising Center serves students who are still seeking a major or are interested in a major for which they are not yet eligible. During this time, you will be designated as a “Liberal Studies/General” student until you transition successfully out of the Liberal Studies/General program and into a specific academic major. 
Pierpont’s advisors are happy to meet with you in person, through phone or via email — whatever best fits your schedule. We know you’re busy with families, jobs, and life in general, and we want to make it convenient for you. 
We look forward to meeting you at Orientation!
If you're unable to attend one of the Orientation dates and would like an individual appointment, please contact or call 304-367-4990.  Advisors are available every day, M-F.
