Academic Advising for Students


Academic Advising at TCL

All students are required to meet with an Academic Advisor to plan an appropriate course schedule. After all, we want to make sure you get started on the right track.

Find out who your advisor is by logging in to TCL Self Service.

  • Go to
  • Select the Student Planner tab
  • Select Go to Plan & Schedule
  • Click on the Advising tab to view your advisor information

If you have difficulty finding your Advisor’s information, contact the Admissions Office in Coleman Hall, Bldg. 2, Beaufort Campus or

Before you go to your advising appointment be sure to view your progress toward program completion.

If you are taking ALL of your classes online,  you are advised by the same advisors as the students who are in classrooms. If you cannot come in to see the advisor, you should call the faculty member for advisement and then register yourself using your  TCL Self-Service account.  Use the Quick Student Planning and Registration Guide to step by step instructions.
