Advisors help students clarify and achieve their educational goals. Advising staff also assist students with quarterly course selection, transfer planning, educational planning, and student success strategies.
You can meet with an advisor via phone, email, or Zoom lobby. Contact one of the advising centers if you need assistance – we will help you make an appointment and help you select the best way to conduct your appointment.
When you enter the Zoom lobby, you will be placed in a waiting room and someone will be with you shortly.
Hours: Monday through Thursday: 8:30 a.m. - 4 p.m., Friday: 8:30 - 11:30 a.m.
Meeting ID: 298 653 709

All students are assigned to an academic advisor based on their program of study. To look up your assigned advisor, please log in to your MyPierce Portal to retrieve their name and contact information.
After you receive your welcome email from Admissions, you will be guided to log into your MyPierce Portal. Within MyPierce, you can set up your student email account and watch a series of new student informational videos that provide an overview of the college’s processes, including information about our career pathways. Module 7 of the videos takes you to an online intake card. After completing the intake card, you will be contacted to schedule your initial advising appointment.
Prospective students who are thinking of attending Pierce College, but need more information before applying, may make an appointment with an admissions coach located in the advising centers at both Fort Steilacoom and Puyallup.
