Advisor with student

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.

When you enter the Zoom lobby, you will be placed in a waiting room and someone will be with you shortly.

Other Ways to Contact Us

Current Students

All students are assigned to an academic advisor based on their program of study. To look up your assigned advisor, please log in to ctcLink (Student Homepage > Academic Progress Tile > Advisors Tab) to retrieve their name and contact information.

New/Prospective Students

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.
