Once you have viewed the Archer Preview video, your next step is to schedule an appointment and meet with a professional academic advisor.

Schedule your Academic Advising appointment through Navigate. We are now taking virtual appointments. When scheduling your appointment please indicate in the comments if you prefer phone or online.

Meet one-on-one with an advisor to review your current high school transcript and ACT scores if you have them, and guide your placement for English, math and reading courses. Your advisor will also work with you to explore programs of study and select the appropriate classes for your educational goals.

Note: this step was formerly referred to as New Student Registration Workshop or NSRW. You may see NSRW used sporadically as we work to transition the name of this experience.

Attend an Archer Ready event. Archer Ready events are scheduled just prior to the start of classes in the fall and spring, and are designed to introduce you to STLCC resources and services, connect you with faculty/instructors to learn about academic supports and expectations and allow you to complete services as needed (paying for college, obtaining your STLCC ID, finding classrooms, parking and transportation, etc.). Be sure to bring your Student ID number and a photo ID.
