About Our Services
One-on-one AdvisorAs an exploratory student, you’ll be assigned to an academic advisor who can help keep you on track academically as you navigate your academic major decision. Your advisor will help you build a schedule based around your interests and the general education courses you need, so the courses you take count toward your degree.

They can help you make sense of your passions and priorities, so you’re better able to decide which career is right for you. At Southeast, all of our career counselors have, at minimum, a master’s degree in counseling or a related field.
